Pianist Dave Brubeck's legendary career includes an impressive list of "firsts." His 1959 album Take Five was the first jazz recording to sell more than one million copies. He was the first jazz artist to appear on the cover of Time magazine. During World War II he formed one of the Armed Forces' first racially integrated bands.

Brubeck's prodigious body of work includes classic jazz tunes like "Blue Rondo á la Turk," "The Duke," and "In Your Own Sweet Way," as well as ballets, Broadway and opera scores, liturgical music, and much more. His unique compositions often blend jazz and classical styles and feature swinging grooves in unusual time signatures. That Brubeck achieved such unprecedented popularity and fame while constantly experimenting is a testament to his artistry and gift for musical storytelling.

Described as "one of the foremost keepers of the flame in jazz today" (Jack Kleinsinger, Highlights in Jazz), multi-instrumentalist and educator Victor Lin is one of Stanford Jazz Workshop's most dynamic performers. Playing either piano or violin, he delights audiences with his infectious energy, creativity, and natural showmanship. His tribute to the music of 1959 was a highlight of last year's Stanford Jazz Festival.

Pianist Joe Gilman, whom Brubeck himself called "one of the greatest pianists I've ever heard," is the musical director of the Brubeck Institute. The superb musicianship and creativity of Lin, Gilman and other SJW faculty will give you a new appreciation for the music written or inspired by Dave Brubeck, one of America's most celebrated composers and a master of 20th century jazz.
