Brubeck Brothers Quartet to Make Harris Center/Three Stages Debut, 9/19
In a special presentation in which the brothers pay tribute to their dad -- the legendary Dave Brubeck, The Brubeck Brothers Quartet makes their Harris Center/Three Stages debut. "Dave Brubeck's music is rich with challenging chord progressions and beautiful melodies," says Chris Brubeck. "Dave is one of the biggest inspirations in all our lives, and we all thought it was time to salute his compositions, adding the BBQ's fresh approach to some of his most enduring tunes."
The Brubeck Brothers Quartet is an exciting jazz group featuring two members of one of America's most accomplished musical families, Dan Brubeck (drums,) and Chris Brubeck (bass & trombone.) Guitarist Mike DeMicco, and pianist Chuck Lamb, complete this dynamic quartet. They have performed at concert series, colleges, and jazz festivals across North America and Europe including the Newport, Detroit, Ravinia, Las Vegas, Sedona, Spokane & Monterey Jazz Festivals.
Their new Koch release, Classified, has already earned this rave review from All About Jazz: "Once again the BBQ attains that rarefied level where music is both relaxed and expressive, and their joy in its creation is contagious. There's really nothing out there that comes close to their unique brand of inventiveness."
Brubeck Brothers Quartet - A Tribute to Dave Brubeck will take place on Thursday, September 19, 2013; 7:30 pm. Tickets are $25-$35; Premium $45; Students with ID $12. Tickets are available online at www.harriscenter.net or from Harris Center Ticket Office at 916-608-6888 from 10 am to 6 pm, Monday through Saturday, and two hours before show time. Parking is included in the price of the ticket. Harris Center is located on the west side of Folsom Lake College campus in Folsom, CA, facing East Bidwell Street.
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.
