Darius Brubeck Quartet
September 23rd, 2019
Appearing as part of KENILWORTH ARTS FESTIVAL (https://www.kenilworthartsfestival.co.uk) at 8pm at St. John’s Church, Warwick Road, Kenilworth CV8 1HY.
Acclaimed American jazz pianist and son of legendary musician Dave Brubeck will be bringing his celebrated quartet to Kenilworth. Featuring Dave O’Higgins (sax), Matt Ridley (bass) and Wesley Gibbens (drums), the DBQ have been together for over a decade, touring the world and earning considerable acclaim in the process.
Jazzwise Magazine have described the combination of Brubeck and O’Higgins as among the best piano/sax partnerships in the UK. Here, the quartet will be offering a one-off glimpse into material from a forthcoming album, due for release in early 2020 on Ubuntu Music. The album was recorded during their highly successful tour of Poland, where they played to full houses in six cities. The concerts celebrated the 60th anniversary of Dave Brubeck’s jazz ambassadorial tour behind the Iron Curtain in 1958. The new album includes Dave Brubeck’s hit, “Take Five”, as well as new compositions from Darius.
