Talking with Dave Brubeck

Picture of Dave Brubeck speaking from behind a piano

Over the course of a year of filming Hedrick Smith had the opportunity to interview Dave Brubeck all over the globe - on the road in London and Berlin, in Stockton, CA as he returned to his alma matter, the University of the Pacific, and at his home in Wilton, CT. The result is over 16 hours of footage, priceless anecdotes and a truly intimate portrait of the man and the musician.

Here is a sampling of those conversations -- Dave Brubeck discussing some of the people, places and issues that have shaped his career. From how he creates his music, to what it's like to play with his sons, to what it meant to be a white man in a what many perceived to be a black man's world, this section offers rare insights into one of the country's great jazz legends.
