Apr 9th, 2009 | WILTON, Conn. -- Dave Brubeck's son says the jazz pianist and composer is looking forward to returning to the road for some shows after being hospitalized for a viral infection.
Chris Brubeck says his 88-year-old father is recovering at his Wilton, Conn., home, and hopes to be well enough to perform in a few weeks. He was released from Norwalk Hospital last week.
I actually got to hug him at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Fest in the '70s. A sweet and happy man who loves his fans. He played with his sons who all have major chops.
