The Blue Note has released the following statement on the passing of Dave Brubeck.

"It is with deep sorrow that the Blue Note shares in the news of Dave Brubeck's passing. Our hearts go out to his wife Iola and his entire family.

"A familiar face and sound at the club over the years, Brubeck helped establish the club in its early years, with his last appearance coming in June 2010. Brubeck was such an inspiration to us all, not only through his innovations in music but his personality. Always classy, Brubeck was known for his supportive and encouraging nature. Further, he was genuinely funny, friendly, and clever – able to put a smile on anyone's face.

"While we mourn his passing, we celebrate his outstanding accomplishments as a bandleader, composer, and pianist. His path will serve as an example for years to come."
