"This is a very special year for the Brubeck Brothers: they are on a national tour with a tribute to their father, who passed away less than a year ago," said Ed Bride, Pittsfield CityJazz Producer. "They bring that tour to the same venue, The Colonial Theatre, where Dave Brubeck made his final appearance in the Berkshires, in 2009. It will be a very special night, indeed."
The concert represents a continuation of a series of collaborations between BTG and Berkshires Jazz, a collaboration that has brought many legendary performers and jazz masters to Berkshire audiences. NEA Jazz Masters like Billy Taylor, Dave Brubeck (both deceased), and Phil Woods, as well as next-generation stalwarts like T.S. Monk, Claire Daly, Grace Kelly, and now, The Brubeck Brothers.
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 Brubeck Brothers 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.
