Yardbird Suite, 11 Tommy Banks Way Northwest, Edmonton


Events Description

Chris Brubeck and Dan Brubeck have been making music together practically all their lives. Drummer Dan and bassist, trombonist, and composer Chris cut their first record together in 1966 – more than half a century ago. They’ve subsequently played a variety of styles in a number of different groups, as well as with their father, jazz giant Dave Brubeck, and with their own Brubeck Brothers Quartet (“BBQ”). With Dan and Chris as the foundation, guitarist Mike DeMicco and pianist Chuck Lamb, complete this dynamic quartet.

The group’s visit to the Yardbird Suite will commemorate the 60th anniversary of one of the iconic jazz albums of all time – “Time Out” by the Dave Brubeck Quartet – one of the most rhythmically innovative albums in jazz history, the first to consciously explore time signatures outside of the standard 4/4 beat or 3/4 waltz time. “Blue Rondo a la Turk”, inspired by the quartet’s visit to Istanbul, and “Take Five” are just two of the now classic Dave Brubeck compositions from “Time Out”. It is sophisticated music, which lends itself to cerebral appreciation, yet never stops swinging. Countless other musicians built on its pioneering experiments, yet it is amazingly accessible for all its advanced thinking, a rare feat in any art form. Expect to hear BBQ play a couple of the classic tunes from this album.
