Thanks for visiting this site where you will find information (gigs, bios, reviews, music for sale) about The Darius Brubeck Quartet and Brubecks Play Brubeck. Both groups also have facebook band pages.
The Darius Brubeck Quartet's new CD, 'Cathy's Summer' will be available in November. Please click on Calendar for upcoming dates.
The Darius Brubeck Quartet, with its three dimensional programming of original compositions, Dave Brubeck hits and South African jazz is a real draw. Playing to consistently sold-out houses at regional festivals and clubs, including London’s Ronnie Scott’s, their acoustic sound is melodic, spontaneous, rhythmic and audience-friendly. Duncan Heining in “Jazzwise” magazine described the group’s performance at the 2012 Scarborough Festival as his “gig of the year”.
The Darius Brubeck Quartet has two CDs with South African-based sax player, Mike Rossi:

'Gig of the Year: The Darius Brubeck Quartet. Scarborough Jazz Festival' - Duncan Heining, Jazzwise Dec12/Jan13
The Darius Brubeck Quartet has acquired an enthusiastic following for its strong programs of South African jazz, Dave Brubeck hits and Darius’ original compositions.
Playing to consistently sold-out houses at regional festivals and clubs, including London’s Ronnie Scott’s, Pizza Express and 606 Jazz Clubs, the London-based Quartet’s acoustic sound is melodic, spontaneous and rhythmically exciting. Audiences also appreciate the talk between songs. The London-based Quartet has toured Europe and the Middle East and recorded two CDs, “For Lydia and the Lion” and “Two And Four/To And Fro”.
‘More than half a century after [Dave Brubeck] invited listeners to start counting in odd numbers, the music has lost none of its poise… Darius is as cultured a pianist as his father.' Clive Davis, The Times
'Darius, the eldest [of Dave Brubeck’s sons] and most visually like his father, plays stylish piano and knows the score.' Jack Massarik, Evening Standard

BRUBECKS PLAY BRUBECK
BRUBECKS PLAY BRUBECK completed their 2013 tour of the UK on July 4th with yet another completely sold-out concert at the modern Norden Farm Arts Centre in Maidenhead which is now available on DVD. The tour included a highly unusual run of eight consecutive sold-out shows at Ronnie Scotts Jazz Club. The Brubecks' concerts outside of London (as well as at Ronnie's) ended with standing ovations, encores and impressive CD sales, demonstrating that there is still a strong, cross-generational following for Brubeck music.
This year (2014) they enjoyed equally successful sold-out appearances in the The Brubeck Festival held at Jazz at Lincoln Center in April and another run at Ronnie Scott's in September.
