The cool style of play was forced upon Brubeck after a neck and spinal cord injury suffered in a diving, maybe surfing accident made it difficult for him to play the fast one note runs that were popular among jazz pianists of the day, forcing him into a slower style of play that featured more complex rhythms and harmonies along with chunkier revolving chords.
From their classic album Time Out, this is the Dave Brubeck Quartet, Dave Brubeck on Piano, his longtime partner Paul Desmond on the Alto Sax, Eugene Wright on the upright bass and Joe Morello on the drums performing their international hit in 5/4 time.

"Those who live in a cold climate and in [northern] Europe are full of spirit, but wanting in intelligence and skill; and therefore they keep their freedom, but have no political organization, and are incapable of ruling over others.
But the Hellenic race, which is situated between them, is likewise intermediate in character, being high-spirited and also intelligent. Hence it continues free, and is the best governed of any nation, and, if it could be formed into one state, would be able to rule the world."
