Dave Brubeck RIP

The jazz musician Dave Brubeck has died. While remembered by most, I guess, for 'Take Five' (a track I still love) he was led to be received into the Church after producing a range of religious works (one of which Louis Armstrong could not perform without being moved to tears).

Of his reception he said:
"I didn't convert to Catholicism, because I wasn't anything to convert from. I just joined the Catholic Church"

HERE is a piece on his religious work from an American Dominican.
