Brubeck Brothers Quartet: Timeline

Read "Timeline" reviewed by Dr. Judith Schlesinger

This album by the Brubeck Brothers--led by Chris and Dan Brubeck, sons of legendary pianist Dave Brubeck--commemorates the 60th anniversary of “President Eisenhower's Special International Program for Cultural Presentations," the 1958 State department tour in which prominent jazz musicians traveled to 14 countries to give 80 concerts in 90 days. This grueling schedule was endured by ...

Dave Brubeck Quartet: Brubeck Meets Bach

Read "Brubeck Meets Bach" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Musica classica e jazz: la formazione professionale e la passione musicale dell’oggi ottantasettenne Dave Brubeck. Una leggenda vivente del jazz moderno, che ha spesso tratto dalla sensibilità eurocolta una potente fonte di ispirazione. Due mondi così diversi e lontani, spesso da lui giustapposti con alterne fortune nel corso della sua più che quarantennale storia artistica. Una considerazione che ...

Dave Brubeck Quartet: London Flat, London Sharp

Read "London Flat, London Sharp" reviewed by George Harris

It's ironic that Dave Brubeck, alive and well into his 80's, is best known for a song he didn't even write over forty years ago. Ironic, because, as London Flat, London Sharp testifies, his own writing has only improved with age. With the wisdom that comes with decades of playing, his touch on the piano, while ...

Dave Brubeck Quartet: Jazz at the College of the Pacific

Read "Jazz at the College of the Pacific" reviewed by David Rickert

Before he hit it big with Time Out, Dave Brubeck found a niche market with the college crowd. The tweed coat and horn-rimmed glasses set were eager to soak in all that he had to offer, and Brubeck can take part of the credit for turning jazz into a more academic pursuit than it was previously ...

Dave Brubeck Quartet: The Crossing

Read "The Crossing" reviewed by Dave Nathan

Dave Brubeck's newest album is titled The Crossing. Whether there is some deep allegorical meaning here is unclear. God knows, at this stage of this man's career he needs neither metaphors nor affirmation. Having performed in each of the last seven decades, Brubeck has passed the greatest and sternest test of all, time. He's here with ...
