Darius Brubeck in Conversation about Time Out,
2.30 Kings Place, Hall Two
90 York Way,
On Sunday Darius Brubeck will be discussing Time Out, the album containing the hits ‘Take Five’ and ‘Blue Rondo a la Turk’, tunes recognized even by people who claim not to have heard any jazz in their lives. The story of this album of ‘originals’ produced in the golden era of ‘standards’ reveals the interplay of musical inspiration, record-business politics and commercial success. Time Out basically re-wrote the rules for all time.
Darius Brubeck Quartet
7.30pm, Kings Place, King’s Cross, London
Darius Brubeck tips his hat to the family legacy, with his father’s hits acting as the jumping off point for new music that is in part inspired by years working in South Africa – an appropriate contribution to Kings Place’s year of Time Unwrapped. Saxophonist Dave O’Higgins has long been one of Britain’s finest, and bassist Matt Ridley and drummer Wesley Gibbens complete a fine quartet whose melodic, spontaneous, rhythmic and engaging music is the hallmark of a band reflecting on its ten-year history.
60 years after the Dave Brubeck Quartet became the first American jazz group to tour Poland in 1958, the Darius Brubeck Quartet will recreate the original multi-city tour. Details are still pending confirmation and will be posted here soon.
