Musicians in Their Own Words: Dave Brubeck

As part of the occasional series "Musicians: In Their Own Words," pianist and composer Dave Brubeck talks about the similarities between classical and jazz. He says a good melody works well with a jazz quartet or a symphony orchestra. And he says that Bach took drinking songs and set them to sacred text. Features in the series are produced by David Schulman and NPR's Jeffrey Freymann-Weyr.
