Dave Brubeck plays his piece "Thank You", a tribute to Frédéric Chopin, live on a PBS special celebrating the 300th anniversary of the invention of the piano. Broadcast in June of 2000.
- Dave Brubeck - Thank You . . . si tu as des oreilles comme tu sembles le dire, tu devrais être capable de saisir la différence . . .sans rancune.
- Be quiet, you don't even have ears.
- Bad video, bad sound. . . amateur !!!
- Would not dare suggest that this rendition is preferable to that of the original recording. It's just that seeing Mr. Brubeck in performance carries great emotional impact, which makes it irreplaceable.
- Lovely piece.
- I meant that the original "Dziękuję" was from the 50s album, so it was an "early Brubeck".
This recording indeed is a very late Brubeck's improvisation on a piece he wrote in the 50s... It is a full circle - an old master revisiting a piece from his younger days. I actually heard him play this in mid 90-s in Cambridge (Massachusetts) - very different, again. So that's what he did - he played it almost "as new" every time. Rest in peace, Dave, you can do as many takes as you wish.
- Genius Genius fucking Genius !!!!!!!!
- Top notch version of this on his interview album with Marian McPartland, great mix of jazz and classical. Love his latest solo albums on the Telarc label also. They have alot of feeling. Hear me now believe me later.
- Early Brubeck, actually - original piece is from 1958 album "Impressions of Eurasia" although Mr. Brubeck reprised it many times throughout his life. I heard him play it in mid-90s in Boston, and in 2009 in Montreal. The title is "Dziękuję" which is Polish for "Thank you"...
- I've heard it was not only dedicated to Chopin, but that before he performed it , he said, "I wish my mother was here to hear this." His mother was his piano teacher, and played Chopin.
- R.I.P. Dave.
- LOL this is a tribute to Chopin. He wrote this after visiting Chopin's house in Poland. You should listen to the interview he had with Marian McPartland on Piano Jazz. It is an original Brubeck piece entitled, "Thank You" dedicated to Chopin.
- The beginning does sound like a Chopin melody, although I'm not very familiar with Chopin's oeuvre.
- This song is also called "There'll Be No Tomorrow" and has been recorded with Carmen McRae and separately by Dave instrumentally. Beautiful melody and a personal favorite of mine.
- At least as much as Chopin deserves a "Thank you" tribute, Brubeck deserves another.
- This is truly lovely, but has absolutely nothing to do with Chopin whose work I know intimately. Not even in the same ballpark.
- The version on "Two Generations of Brubeck" is another standout performance of this tune. (Also has what I think is the best ever version of "Forty Days".)
- Cheers Dave
- The beginning deeply deeply resembles the Brazilian like by Michel Petricianni.
- Just super!...
- great!!! So deep, the point where the planets crash...Chopin and Brubeck...
