D. J. David B. Spins Comics-Tunes: Take Five, Dave

  

We’re not accustomed to writing obituaries here, especially since a lot of the comics and music we share are from artists long gone anyway. But we’ve been itching (get it?) to share this piece by Dave Brubeck and since he just passed away on December 5th there’s no time like the present.

Although Brubeck composed the music for “This Is America, Charlie Brown” it would be too easy to make that comics connection. Instead we’re presenting this somewhat obscure track from the “Dave Digs Disney” album. It’s his jazzy take on “Heigh Ho” from “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.”

 

Now I have a question for those erudite ITCHers out there who majored in English or have a degree of some sort. Why is it “dwarfs” and not “dwarves”? We say “shelves” for the plural of “shelf.” We say “elves” for the plural of “elf.” Why don’t we change that F to a V when there’s more than one dwarf? It’s food for thought.  

 

 

You can ponder that burning issue while you listen to Dave digging Disney. Just click the link below and enjoy.
