Saturday 27 April
Darius Brubeck Quartet
7.30pm, Kings Place, King’s Cross, London
Darius Brubeck tips his hat to the family legacy, with his father’s hits acting as the jumping off point for new music that is in part inspired by years working in South Africa – an appropriate contribution to Kings Place’s year of Time Unwrapped. Saxophonist Dave O’Higgins has long been one of Britain’s finest, and bassist Matt Ridley and drummer Wesley Gibbens complete a fine quartet whose melodic, spontaneous, rhythmic and engaging music is the hallmark of a band reflecting on its ten-year history.
