Growing up in the artistic milieu of his famous father Dave, Darius has enjoyed a lifetime of varied international experience as a band leader, composer, teacher and broadcaster. Darius’ lyrical, yet emotive delivery is very reminiscent of his father’s devotion to exploring different time signatures and grooves spurred on with that classic 1959 LP, Time Out, which featured Blue Rondo a la Turk and, of course, the chart-topping classic, Take Five.
This evening will feature a mixture of standards, some of father Dave’s hits, South African jazz and originals, including new compositions from their recently released Live In Poland CD, recorded at Poland’s Poznan Blue Note.
Darius Brubeck Quartet
Playing to sold-out houses at regional festivals and clubs, the quartet’s acoustic sound is melodic, spontaneous, rhythmic and engaging. Darius, while known for representing his famous father’s (Dave Brubeck) musical legacy and for his work in South Africa, is an imaginative jazz composer and performing his compositions is an important reason for the group’s popularity.
