Details

Born in San Francisco, jazz pianist and composer Darius Brubeck grew up in the artistic milieu of his famous father Dave and has enjoyed a lifetime of varied international experience as band leader, composer, teacher and broadcaster.

After graduating from university, Darius led his own groups, played with Don McLean and Larry Coryell, and in the 70s was ushered into the international jazz scene as a member of Two Generations of Brubeck and The New Brubeck Quartet (Dave, Darius, Chris and Dan) under his father’s leadership.

Throughout his life, Darius has been inspired by travel and the musical influences from many far-flung places: the beat of Brazil, the direct emotion of South African jazz, the improvisation and rhythm of Asian musics, and the lyricism and harmony of the European tradition.

Darius’ lyrical, yet emotive delivery is offset by his focussed rhythmic incisiveness, which is very reminiscent of his father's devotion to exploring different time signatures and grooves spurred on with that classic 1959 LP, Time Out, which featured Blue Rondo a la Turk and, of course, the chart-topping Take 5.

A quartet whose chemistry has to be seen live to be appreciated and who never fail to delight audiences, the DBQ play a mixture of standards, some of father Dave’s hits, South African jazz and primarily original material from Darius’ two highly acclaimed CDs, Cathy’s Summer and Years Ago.

This is the group’s only date in the Eastern region, so don’t miss it!
