Kansas City jazz activist Dave Hanson replied:
Brubeck could have been playing on a Meiserdorf which has an additional 
octave in the bass............Dave

Vickers said: "Meiserdorf" is a new name to me( I can find Meisdorf, Germany
but no piano by that name), but Bosendorfer piano has extra keys.
Vickers also quipped:  There will always be nit-pickers! (smile)
