One day short of his 92nd birthday, jazz pianist Dave Brubeck died on Wednesday from heart failure. His 1959 album Time Out, recorded with the other members of The Dave Brubeck Quartet, helped to popularize jazz for a generation of Americans. During his six-decade career, Brubeck earned honors from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Kennedy Center, and the American Classical Music Hall of Fame.
