Darius Brubeck “Brubeck plays Brubeck”

There are the great jazz musicians and then there are the myths, the real fathers of the genre. One of them is Dave Brubeck; with his west coast jazz he became an extraordinary popularizer of jazz and for this reason he is often criticized by those who loved to think of an exclusively African American genre, pure and uncontaminated. From Friday 3rd of July, for a week, The Brass Group will put online on the Brass Webtv the concert of the only stop in Italy of his son Darius, playing at the Real Teatro Santa Cecilia. Dave was a forerunner of what we will now call contamination between different styles and sounds, involving an ever wider audience. A formidable pianist and composer, he has become the history of the jazz piano. An exhibition that featured Darius Brubeck, the son of the legendary musician, with his quartet composed by him on the piano, by Dave O’Higgins on sax, Matt Didley on bass, Wesley Gibbens on drums, with original compositions from his father’s repertoire up to to the famous “Take Five”
