The most fascinating article I've ever read about a house! The pictures perfectly compliment the story, also. Great job, Marc!

This post gets right to the point and is written with expertise. Getting this kind of information from someone with an in-depth point of view is really valuable to anyone that is either trying to learn about the subject for the first time or trying to expand their understanding of it. metal carport

"In this house the Dave Brubeck Quartet often rehearsed, and here 'Take Five' was conceived with Paul Desmond, Joe Morello, and Eugene Wright. It was also here that Dave wrote 'The Duke', 'In Your Own Sweet Way,' and 'Blue Rondo a la Turk.' "

What you explain about the history here is amazing. My mentor Art Rodriguez drummer of the Manhatton Transfer reminds me of these times.

Very interesting article! The Brubeck house is an unforgettable part of my childhood growing up in the Oakland hills; Chris Brubeck and I were playmates during the late 50's, but it wasn't until the mid 60's when a friend's parents bought the house that I was finally able to see the interior.
