Darius Brubeck portrait

Darius is an American jazz pianist, composer, author, and retired university professor residing in England. Darius and his wife, Catherine, are in the final stages of completing their co-written book, Playing the Changes, a memoir of their 23 years in South Africa where Darius introduced the first university jazz course and where they ran the internationally famous Centre for Jazz & Popular Music on the Durban campus of the University of KwaZulu-Natal. A documentary film also titled Playing the Changes will be released next year.

Currently, he leads The Darius Brubeck Quartet based in London and occasionally joins his USA-based brothers, Chris and Dan, in Brubecks Play Brubeck.

Downbeat Magazine listed The Darius Brubeck Quartet Live in Poland as among the ‘best of 2020’ but the group only resumed touring the following year.
