BRUBECKS PLAY BRUBECK Celebrate Dave Brubeck’s Centennial in 2020
Dave Brubeck was born in 1920 and went on to have a long and illustrious career as a composer, pianist and jazz ambassador. His famous Dave Brubeck Quartet recorded ‘Take Five’ and ‘Blue Rondo a la Turk’ on Time Out in 1959 and these tracks remain hugely popular the world over.
His sons Darius, Chris and Dan, have toured annually as Brubecks Play Brubeck every year since the group was formed (with Dave O’Higgins on sax) for a UK concert tour in 2010. Ten years later they are celebrating Dave Brubeck’s Centennial with concerts in the USA, Europe and the UK.
…….. “Darius, Chris and Dan, augmented by British saxist Dave O’Higgins, are rekindling the old magic. The four cantered affectionately through the hit list, but shrewdly didn’t try to clone the original sound.”
John Fordham, The Guardian
“At the end of a joyous second set the pianist Darius Brubeck and his brothers cued in the audience’s handclaps on Unsquare Dance. More than half a century after their father invited listeners to start counting in odd numbers, the music has lost none of its poise.”
Clive Davis, The Times
