I wondered if Dave Brubeck & Ravi Shankar had ever performed together?

The only rumoured collaboration i found was on an english version of a heart song /anti-war song by Vietnamese composer/musician Pham Dhuy (Phạm Duy Cẩn), english lyrics by Stephen Addis: listen/judge for yourself: Ballad from Vietnam, The Rain on the Leaves.
