RIP Randy Jones

RIP Randy Jones

Dave's drummer for many years, Randy Jones, passed away June 13, 2016.

Born in Slough, Berkshire, Randy was a versatile musician capable of driving a big band, but could also play quite well with smaller units. He started playing professionally when he was 16, touring Germany with an English rock and roll group. In between, he backed up rock and pop artists in television variety shows, while performing on stage or recording in studio.

Randy moved to the States in 1972 and in 1978 joined the Dave Brubeck Quartet, beginning an association which lasted until Dave's death in 2012. Randy was a dear friend to all the Brubecks and will be sorely missed.
