Today on Soundcheck: We pay tribute to jazz legend Dave Brubeck, who died yesterday the day before what would have been his 92nd birthday. 

A new compilation explores both the musical history of Hanukkah in the U.S. as well as the influence of Jewish songwriters on America's classic Christmas songbook. 

And art punk band ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead perform and talk about the political themes found on its latest album, Lost Songs.
