We lost a giant last week. As a member of the Dave Brubeck Quartet, Eugene Wright played bass on some of the most classic jazz records ever made, including “Take Five.” Here he is laying it down back in 1965.

Very sad to hear of Eugene Wright’s passing. Always loved this track of his from the Brubeck “25th Anniversary Reunion” album — found it in my dad’s record collection as a kid and played over and over. My first introduction to the possibilities of jazz. https://t.co/y1EXjpEnf8 https://t.co/OPYKNEmy1d
