Who better to cap the jazz element of OFAM 2004's "The Fabulous Fifties" than Dave Brubeck? Brubeck and his Trio cut their first records in San Francisco in 1949 and won Best Small Combo awards in both the Critics' and the Reader's Polls in Down Beat Magazine. When the Dave Brubeck Quartet with Paul Desmond on alto saxophone was formed in 1951, the distinctive harmonic approach employed by Brubeck and Desmond, and their daring improvised contrapuntal choruses, caused a stir in the jazz world, recorded some some of jazz's timeless classics ("Take Five" and "Blue Rondo A La Turk") and launched what later became known as "West Coast" or "cool" jazz.
