I was at the show, Dakota has talent, and Brubeck at 87 can still tickle the ivory .... great show and festival!

Why can't we have more articles like this one?

Nothing sad, no killings, no crime,.... just a 12yr old kid getting the meeting of a lifetime.

This is good reporting.

It's too bad that the thread for this story couldn't have stayed upbeat. We finally get a positive story and you spew your anger all over it. There aren't enough negative stories for you to comment on? I don't like the fact that some threads get shut down either, but trying to stay positive once in a while doesn't hurt anyone.

Agreed. I got to meet Dave when he performed at SummerWind in Windsor several years ago, and he was just as solicitous of the young musicians there as he was of Dakota. Long live Dave Brubeck!
