Bob Perkins on Dave Brubeck: The Interview

Bob PerkinsAs much as I enjoyed writing about Dave Brubeck here, nothing matches sitting down with WRTI’s own jazz legend, Bob Perkins, to ask him for his thoughts on what Brubeck means to music. What a gentleman Bob is, and in Philadelphia, BP is jazz. Listen to my interview with him here, in which he recommends a couple of (surprising) albums as essential Dave Brubeck.

Also you’ll hear BP’s thoughts on the members of the Quartet; a Broad Street apartment building that housed Brubeck and a couple of other jazz icons; the universe; Louis Armstrong’s singing; and stay to the end for the definition of “cat.” When you hear it from BP, you’ve heard it.
