Drummer Dan Brubeck and bassist-trombonist-composer Chris Brubeck have been making music together nearly all their lives and began working in the 1970s with their legendary father, pianist-composer Dave Brubeck, who died in 2012.
In this multimedia presentation, the brothers will mark the centennial of their late father’s birth with a tribute that includes stories and images as well as music from his extraordinary life and career. Dave Brubeck, a leading exponent of cool jazz, is perhaps best known for his 1959 album Time Out, which remains one of the most popular and influential jazz records of all time.
Rounding out the group are Mike DeMicco on guitar and Chuck Lamb on piano. Joining them on tenor saxophone for such classics as “Take Five” and “Blue Rondo a la Turk” will be Todd Williams, who first gained national fame performing with Wynton Marsalis in the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra and smaller combos. Williams recently earned a doctoral degree from the IU Jacobs School of Music and now serves as an assistant professor of music at Indiana Wesleyan University, as well as host of the Center's JazzTalk discussion series.
