Dave Brubeck

7:30 p.m. Sunday, June 3. Sheldon Concert Hall, (3648 Washington Boulevard.)

The term "living legend" is used promiscuously in this hyperbolic age, but in the world of jazz, Dave Brubeck certainly qualifies for the designation. Both an innovator and a popularizer, the pianist and composer integrated odd time signatures into the jazz vocabulary while simultaneously enjoying a rare level of commercial success for a jazzman. And in a field with a notoriously high casualty rate, Brubeck has not just survived but thrived into his eighties, living to see his work preserved at a namesake institute at the University of the Pacific and his sons succeed in the family business. The basic format of his performances is well-established, but Brubeck and his quartet still relish finding small moments of surprise as much as fans enjoy hearing them.
