Darius Brubeck Quartet

Born in San Francisco, jazz pianist and composer Darius Brubeck grew up in the artistic milieu of his famous father Dave Brubeck and has enjoyed a lifetime of varied international experience as band leader, composer, teacher and broad­caster.

In the 70’s and early 80’s, Darius led his own groups and was ushered into the interna­tional jazz scene as a member of Two Generations of Brubeck and The New Brubeck Quartet (Dave, Darius, Chris, and Dan Brubeck) under his father’s leadership. He moved to South Africa in 1983, where he initiated the first degree course in Jazz Studies offered by an African university and founded the Centre for Jazz and Popular Music at the University of KwaZulu-Natal where, as Professor of Jazz Studies, he taught until 2005. He has also served as a Fulbright visiting professor in Romania and Turkey.

Darius now leads the London based Darius Brubeck Quartet, which has been together for 15 years and tours internationally. Since 2010 he has also toured with Brubecks Play Brubeck, appearing annually at Ronnie Scott’s. Two of his pieces, ‘For Lydia’ and ‘Tugela Rail” were selected by the Associated Board of Royal Schools of Music for its jazz syllabus. The quartet’s Live in Poland was on Downbeat magazine’s best of 2020 list.
