For those of you with TCM - Dave Brubeck: In His Own Sweet Way
Dave Brubeck: In His Own Sweet Way
All-New Documentary, Executive-Produced by Clint Eastwood, Chronicles Life and Music of America's Jazz Ambassador in TCM Premiere, Dec. 6th

With each passing decade, Dave Brubeck continues to amaze millions of fans across the globe. His quartet performed more than 50 concerts in 2010, and Brubeck still creates new compositions. On Monday, Dec. 6, Turner Classic Movies will celebrate Brubeck's 90th birthday with the premiere of Dave Brubeck: In His Own Sweet Way, a new documentary executive-produced by Clint Eastwood.

The documentary takes its name from one of Brubeck's most famous tunes, "In Your Own Sweet Way." Dave Brubeck: In His Own Sweet Way was produced and directed by filmmaker and longtime Eastwood collaborator Bruce Ricker, whose credits include Tony Bennett: The Music Never Ends, Thelonious Monk: Straight No Chaser, The Last of the Blue Devils and TCM's Emmy-nominated Johnny Mercer: The Dream's On Me. Alec Baldwin is the narrator. In addition to serving as executive producer of the film, Eastwood chairs the Honorary Board of the Brubeck Institute at the University of the Pacific in Stockton, Calif.

Dave Brubeck: In His Own Sweet Way tells Brubeck's personal story, including his early musical training; studies with Darius Milhaud, the Dave Brubeck Quartet, featuring Paul Desmond; and the musical revolution caused by his introduction of new time signatures in jazz, such as in the jazz standard Take Five.
