Dave Brubeck Unable to Perform, due to Illness

Dave Brubeck

Legendary pianist Dave Brubeck has canceled all appearances for the next few weeks due to an illness that is preventing him from traveling. According to a press release from the University of the Pacific, which houses Brubeck’s archives, Brubeck, 88, was hospitalized late last week with a viral infection. He currently is under observation at Norwalk Hospital in Norwalk, Conn., and has been ordered by doctors not to travel. No media access will be granted during his stay at the hospital.

Brubeck was scheduled to perform his classic album Time Out at a concert on Fri., April 3 at his alma mater, University of the Pacific in Stockton, Calif., in honor of the 50th anniversary of the revolutionary concept recording. Dave’s eldest son, Darius Brubeck, will perform along with the rest of Dave’s quartet in place of his father.
