    Pioneering jazz pianist and composer Dave Brubeck has died, aged 91.
    The musician, whose recordings included Take Five and Blue Rondo a la Turk, was once designated a "living legend" by the US Library of Congress.
    He died on Wednesday morning in hospital in Connecticut, his manager Russell Gloyd told the Chicago Tribune newspaper.
    The musician, who toured with the likes of Duke Ellington and Ella Fitzgerald would have turned 92 on Thursday.
    Mr Gloyd said Brubeck died of heart failure after being stricken while on his way to a cardiology appointment with his son Darius.

    I've heard his music on various jazz shows. Sorry to hear of his death but he had a good long life.

    It's always shocking to lose someone so young.

    I'm shocked that up until yesterday Dave Brubeck was still alive.

    At twelve when I tried to learn to play Take Five at tempo, that's when I realized I would never be any good at piano. RIP, Dave. Thanks for helping me showcase my lack of talent.
