R.J. DeLuke's Best Releases of 2012

Read "R.J. DeLuke's Best Releases of 2012" reviewed by R.J. DeLuke

Brubecks to Bring Their Magic to Show in Wilton

Brubecks to Bring Their Magic to Show in Wilton

A melodically gifted bassist, Chris Brubeck, a prince in the Brubeck family dynasty, is also a fervent bass trombonist who can evoke dark, mysterious melancholy or swing with brassy, barn-burning heat and fury. What makes this Connecticut Yankee an all-American triple-threat is his ingenuity as a composer/arranger whose eclectic, yet fresh works wed the worlds of American ...
