Brubecks Play Brubeck

by Brubecks Play Brubeck

Three Brubecks and British sax star Dave O'Higgins recorded on tour performing Dave brubeck classics to delighted audiences. Dan's 'epic' Take Five' drum solo and a standing ovation in 7/4 time are among many highlights. This is joyful jazz!

Album Notes
BRUBECKS PLAY BRUBECK features the repertoire and rhythms of the famous Dave Brubeck Quartet but, as John Fordham wrote in the Guardian, “sheltering under the Brubeck umbrella is by no means all the maestro’s offspring do”.

Darius, the eldest Brubeck son is a pianist, composer and academic, now based in the UK with his own Quartet. Chris is known as a composer of symphonic works performed by leading orchestras around the world and also excels as a bass and trombone player in jazz, rock and folk music. Together, Chris and Dan form the nucleus of their US group, The Brubeck Brothers Quartet. Dan also leads his own band in Vancouver and is a Grammy-nominated percussionist with past credits that range from Gerry Mulligan to Larry Coryell. British sax star, Dave O’Higgins, regularly appears with the BBC Big Band and, as a leader of various groups, has a dozen albums to his credit.

In November, 2010, Britain was indeed the ‘winter wonderland’ quoted in Darius’ ‘Take Five’ solo; it was snow-bound from Newcastle to Eastbourne , but no gigs were cancelled and the group and audiences enjoyed the celebratory tour leading up to Dave Brubeck’s 90th birthday on December 6th. Selections chosen from many concerts are on this cd.
