Benny Green on Brubeck

"The world record for wrecking a grand piano is, I believe, around 14 minutes. On Friday night at the Royal Festival Hall it often looked like being lowered ..." Benny Green reviewing a 1962 concert by the Dave Brubeck Quartet.

Ah Benny Green,how I loved that man & his Sunday afternoon shows on Radio 2. Alan Dell of course was another, in fact I think one followed the other, it was a feast, later on Rusell Davies, and the ever popular Parky. What are we left with...words escape me
