Brubeck Brothers Celebrate Dave's Centennial
Chris and Dan Brubeck have been making music together practically all their lives. Drummer Dan and bassist, trombonist, and composer Chris cut their first record together in 1966. They have subsequently played a variety of styles in several different groups, as well as with their father, jazz giant Dave Brubeck.
The dynamic Brubeck Brothers Quartet is made complete by guitarist Mike DeMicco and pianist Chuck Lamb. Together they perform at concert series, colleges, and jazz festivals across North America and Europe including the Newport, Detroit, Montreal, Playboy/Hollywood Bowl, and Monterey Jazz Festivals.
Although the Quartet’s style is rooted in “straight-ahead” jazz, their concerts reveal an inherent ability to explore and play odd time signatures while naturally integrating the influences of funk, blues and world music. The group’s creativity, technique and improvisation can be heard in their uncompromising music, which reflects their dedication to melody, rhythm, culture and the spontaneous spirit of jazz.
