Arena – Dave Brubeck: In His Own Sweet Way (1×60′) – Profile of jazz legend Dave Brubeck in his 90th year. This is the third in a trilogy of films, co-produced by Arena with Clint Eastwood (the others included Tony Bennett – The Music Never Ends (2008) and Johnny Mercer – The Dream’s On Me (2010)). Dave Brubeck – In His Own Sweet Way will tell the story of a living genius.
Brubeck’s career began 65 years ago with revolutionary experiments that would come to be called cool jazz – he was the first jazz musician to appear on the cover of Time magazine. He had one of the biggest popular hits in jazz history with Take Five, a sound as familiar today as it was in 1959.
Brubeck’s daring experiments with time marked him out as one of the most adventurous and technically accomplished jazz musicians ever. A year ago, Brubeck received America’s most prestigious cultural accolade – the Kennedy Centre Lifetime Achievement Award.
