TRENTON, New Jersey (AP) — Legendary jazz drummer Joe Morello, whose
virtuosity and command of odd time signatures made him an integral part of
the Dave Brubeck Quartet on such classic recordings as "Take Five" and
"Blue Rondo a la Turk," has died at age 82. Family members said Morello
died Saturday at his home in northern New Jersey. A cause of death was not 
immediately available. Brubeck said the loss of his friend "came as a complete 
shock to me."

The invasion of Iwo Jima continued to March 26, 1945. The battle was a major initiative
of the Pacific Campaign of World War II. The Marine invasion, known as Operation Detachment, was charged with the mission of capturing the airfields on the island
which up until that time had interfered with U.S. bombing missions to Tokyo. Once
the bases were secured, they could then be of use in the impending invasion of
the Japanese mainland.
