Also by Sara Fishko: The Jazz Loft Project Radio Series

"An Hour with Dave Brubeck" is another in Sara Fishko's series of conversations with musical figures. The interview for the program was taped in Brubeck's studio in Connecticut, in 2004. In the program, Brubeck discusses his childhood, musical influences (from jazz pianist Art Tatum to classical composer Darius Milhaud) and development. Music featured includes a very early recording of Brubeck "imitating" Tatum, Teddy Wilson and other pianists he admired; as well as some of the iconic live and studio recordings from his later days.
