Because of his illness, Michael had
to cancel recent concerts in Israel and
Switzerland. But he vows his saxo-
phone has been silenced only tem-
porarily, and he says he'll "really be
happy to get back to playing."

Veteran Brubeck

Now in its 26th year, the jazz festival,
operated by the Detroit Music Hall,



lost its original sponsor, Ford Motor
Company, and picked up Mack
Avenue Records, with a $250,000
contribution, plus funds from Bank

ers. Festival Director Frank Malfitano
said, "I'm happy to keep this year's
fest dedicated to 'complete jazz,' such
as the legendary Brubeck."
The veteran musician is a pioneer in
both jazz and classical music, and, at
84, is still pounding the keyboard at
concerts around the world. The Dave
Brubeck Quartet will perform 7:15

1950s-'60s, and has earned countless
awards and honors over the years,
becoming the first modern jazz musi-
cian to make the cover of Time maga-
zine (1954).
Brubeck has played with many
Jewish jazz musicians and will unveil
his new choral work at the second
annual Jewish Music Heritage Festival
in New York Wednesday, Sept. 14. He
has composed more than 50 choral
