The Brubeck Brothers Quartet: LifeTimes

Read "LifeTimes" reviewed by Dr. Judith Schlesinger

LifeTimes, the fourth CD from the Brubeck Brothers Quartet, is a powerful tribute to musical giant Dave Brubeck by two of his natural sons (bassist/trombonist Chris Brubeck and drummer Dan Brubeck) and two of their “honorary brothers" (guitarist Mike DeMicco and pianist Chuck Lamb). Half the compositions are Dave's, most of them dating back decades, but ...

The Brubeck Brothers Quartet: Classified

Read "Classified" reviewed by Dr. Judith Schlesinger

There are some obvious similarities: Classified is also unusually bountiful, weighing in at over 78 generous minutes; the band (aka the BBQ) features three of the same stellar players, now with regular touring partner ...
