Today, in 2012 at 91, we lost Dave Brubeck, one of the music icons of the 20th Century. I always loved his music – it seemed to be a natural soundtrack to everything cool, interesting and NYC.
Here’s a few of the times his music’s been used in film and TV.
1. Wedding Crashers – Blue Rondo A La Turk
2. Hanna And Her Sisters – I Remember You
It’s such an NYC feel, of course Woody Allen used it. Makes the scene.
3. The Fifty Year Argument – Take Five
I suppose it’s used to make it look more intellectual or something…
4. The Sound Of Miles Davis – The Duke
Ok, it is a film about Miles Davis, but he is playing a Brubeck song… that’s sort of a sync, right?
If you have any more good syncs using Brubeck, send to me.
