BRUBECK TAKES THAT

BRUBECK TAKES THAT

The BBC becomes the Brubeck Broadcasting Corporation for a moment in December as it marks Dave Brubeck’s 90th birthday: BBC Radio 2 presents Jamie Cullum’s two-part interview with Brubeck and sons (Tuesday 30 November and Tuesday 7 December). On or around 3 December BBC Two or Four TV (channel and date tbc) presents Arena: Dave Brubeck - In His Own Sweet Way, a documentary co-produced by Clint Eastwood and Arena. 

The publicist says that in part two of Jamie’s interview the host and DB “discuss the single from that album – Take That – which, as Jamie says, became one of the most popular tunes in the jazz world.” Perhaps Take Five was meant, but let’s face it, it’s about time that old jazz stuff was given a facelift and who better for the job than Robbie Williams?
