When his sons – who themselves would become professional musicians – were young, the late great pianist-composer Dave Brubeck (1920-2012), whose mother was a piano teacher, used a variety of approaches to instruct them, among them disguising himself as a mustached, absent-minded alter ego by the name of Professor Nooseknocker. For its second Jazz For Young People concert of the 2013-14 season, Jazz at Lincoln Center brings out the heavy artillery – the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis – to bring forth its own two decades of experience in presenting interactive, amusing, family-friendly shows to introduce and illuminate Brubeck’s extraordinary life to young and old alike.
