Honoring Dave Brubeck with his sons Jaz quintet Kennedy Center Dec. 6.2009 David Warren "Dave" Brubeck (born December 6, 1920) is an American jazz pianist. He has written a number of jazz standards, including "In Your Own Sweet Way" and "The Duke". Brubeck's style ranges from refined to bombastic, reflecting his mother's attempts at classical training and his improvisational skills. His music is known for employing unusual time signatures, and superimposing contrasting rhythms, meters, and tonalities. His long-time musical partner, alto saxophonist Paul Desmond, wrote the Dave Brubeck Quartet's best remembered piece, "Take Five", which is in 5/4 time and has endured as a jazz classic. Brubeck experimented with time signatures throughout his career, recording "Pick Up Sticks" in 6/4, "Unsquare Dance" in 7/4, and "Blue Rondo à la Turk" in 9/8. He is also a respected composer of orchestral and sacred music, and wrote soundtracks for television such as Mr. Broadway and the animated miniseries This Is America, Charlie Brown.

Honoring Bruce Springs*** with STING and President Obama (2) Bruce Springs*** was the last to be honored, by a funny speech from The Daily Show's Jon Stewart. Stewart told a story about how as a young bartender in New Jersey, he'd play Springs*** every night in his 1976 Gremlin on his ride home after work. He said that when you listen to Springs***, "You aren't a loser. You are a character in an epic poem...about losers." He praised The Boss for "emptying the tank" with every performance for his audience, and love for his art, family and country. After a thank you to Bruce for his work from Vietnam Veteran author Ron Kovic, John Mellencamp, Indiana's answer to Springs***, performed his own rendition of "Born In the USA." Ben Harper and Jennifer Nettles did a scorching duet of "I'm On Fire", Melissa Etheridge belted out a great cover of "Born To Run", Eddie Vedder a mellow but passionate acoustic performance of "City Of Ruins", and Sting ended the tribute with "The Rising", backed up by a gospel choir, which got the whole building on their feet and singing.
