The Brubeck family is unique in the world of music. Seldom has an entire family been as prolific and talented. Four of Dave Brubeck's five children are professional musicians and, like the Dankworths, they all take off in different directions coming together at special times. Darius, the eldest Brubeck son, is a jazz pianist, composer, educator and band-leader. His sold-out concerts at festivals and clubs around the UK in the last couple of years have received very good reviews. Chris, a multi-instrumentalist and award-winning composer, tours the world performing his exciting trombone concertos and is in great demand as a creator of innovative symphonic pieces. He is also an accomplished electric bassist who excels in jazz, rock and folk genres. Dan is a renowned, Grammy-nominated percussionist, acclaimed for his exciting drum solos and has been featured with musicians as diverse as Gerry Mulligan and The Band. His own recording group, The Dolphins, played to critical success at Ronnie Scott’s. In the 70’s and 80’s the three brothers recorded and toured worldwide with Dave as ‘Two Generations of Brubeck’ and ‘The New Brubeck Quartet’. Now, in their father’s 90th. year, they have come together to play the music that made him a revered icon of modern jazz. With special guest British saxophonist Dave O’Higgins ‘Brubecks Play Brubeck’ concerts will include famous Brubeck originals as well as standard tunes associated with Dave and a few of their own popular compositions.
