The Friday File: On 12/5/12, jazz great Dave Brubeck died at age 91 and on 2/27/13 Harvey Lavan Cliburn, Jr. known best as Van Cliburn passed at age 78. Brubeck’s 1959 album “Time Out” was the first jazz album to sell over a million copies, while Cliburn’s recording of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto #1 in 1958, which won the International Tchaikovsky Competition, was the first classical album to do the same.
