As it had done on his 70th and 75th birthdays, the London Symphony Orchestra honored jazz pianist Dave Brubeck on his 80th birthday with two concerts in December of 2000 at London's Barbican Hall, the home of the LSO. Joining in the concert were members of the Brubeck family, including sons Darius Brubeck on piano, Chris Brubeck on electric bass and bass trombone, Danny Brubeck on drums, and Matthew Brubeck on cello, as well as members of the Brubeck quartet, Bobby Militello on alto saxophone/flute and bassist Alec Dankworth. The London Symphony was conducted by Brubeck's musical director Russell Gloyd. These are highlights from Part 1 of that concert.
