And Jones declared the late musician was "one of the great jazz pianist and composers of our generation".

There have also been online tributes paid by celebrity fans Randy Jackson and comedienne Sandra Bernhard, who wrote, "In honor of the greatest jazz songwriters of all time why don't we 'take five' to remember dave brubeck."
