Enjoy an evening of jazz with the Brubeck Brothers Quartet, featuring two members of one of America’s most accomplished musical families. With Dan Brubeck on drums, Chris Brubeck on bass and trombone, guitarist Mike DeMicco and pianist Chuck Lamb, you don’t want to miss their one-night-only performance at the SCA.
The group’s style is rooted in “straight-ahead” jazz, but their concerts reveal an inherent ability to explore and naturally integrate the influences of funk, blues, and world music. Their 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.
Jazz.com calls Dan Brubeck’s drumming a “revelation,” and All About Jazz says, “The Brubeck Brothers Quartet attains that rarefied level where music is both relaxed and expressive, and their joy in its creation is contagious. There’s nothing out there that comes close to their unique blend of inventiveness.”
The Quartet's last CD, LifeTimes, was a hit on the Jazz Week radio chart where it made the Top Ten list as one of the most played jazz recordings of the year. The Seattle Times wrote of LifeTimes, "The playing that takes place on LifeTimes – the wondrous combination of swing, melodic majesty, masterful arrangements and a truckload of truly inspirational solos – just adds a vibrancy and color to songs I thought I knew and loved on a deep level. It turns out that there was still plenty of depth I could have discovered. I just needed someone to point the way."
The Brubeck Brothers Quartet has performed at concert series, colleges, and jazz festivals across North America and Europe, including the Newport, Detroit, Montreal, Playboy/Hollywood Bowl, and Monterey Jazz Festivals.
