Due to the immense popularity of his work, Brubeck had won multiple awards such as a lifetime achievement award from the Grammys in 1996, a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters Fellowship in 1999, and a Kennedy Center Honor in 2009. Brubeck's style ranged from refined to bombastic, reflecting his mother's attempts at classical training and his improvisational skills. Much of his music employed unusual time signatures, a fact jokingly referred to by his greatest hits album 'Time Signatures: A Career Retrospective'.

Upon his death, a number of commentators noted his crossover appeal to mainstream pop audiences, something putting him in the company of other jazz legends such as Louis Armstrong and Herbie Hancock among others.

It\'s trashy - but wonderful

Who knows more about this song, who made the lyrics and what are the circumstances, Louis sang that song together with dave.

Lyrics for \"Summer Song\" (Brubeck/Armstrong)

Love to me is like a summer\'s day
Silent \'cause there\'s just too much to say,
Still and warm and peaceful.
Even clouds that may drift by
Can\'t disturb our summer sky.

I dig summer, that\'s my time of year.
Winter\'s shadows seem to disappear.
Gayest, warmest season,
That\'s the reason I can say that I love a summer day.

I hear laughter from the swimmin\' hole
Kids out fishin\' with a willow pole.
Boats come driftin\' round the bend.
Why must summer ever end?

Love to me is like a summer day
If it ends, the memories will stay,
Still and warm and peaceful.
Now the days are getting long –
I can sing my summer song.
