Brubeck on Chopin

I've never been much of a fan of jazz music, but some of the greats just amaze me. Dave Brubeck and the way he plays with meter is incredible. The only Brubeck CD I have -- really the only jazz CD I have -- is Jazz Impressions of Eurasia. One of the songs on there, "Thank You (Dziekuje)", barely qualifies as jazz at all: it's a tribute to Chopin that sounds like an original piece by him. I'm not exaggerating, it's just stunning.
