Darius Brubeck in Conversation about Time Out,

2.30 Kings Place, Hall Two
90 York Way, 
N1 9AG

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. 


Wednesday November 21

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.
