Jazz legend Dave Brubeck and his wife Lola are being honored this week by the University of the Pacific for their lifelong commitment to social justice. Brubeck established himself early on with the jazz mega-hit, "Take 5." He's gone on to write many other kinds of music since, including ballets, song cycles, symphonic and choral works, right alongside his jazz standards. Sara Fishko recently spoke with the 83-year-old Dave Brubeck.
