The Quartet is an exciting jazz group featuring two members of one of Americas most accomplished musical families, Dan Brubeck, drums, and Chris Brubeck, bass and trombone. Guitarist Mike DeMicco and pianist Chuck Lamb complete this dynamic quartet.
They have performed at concert series, colleges and jazz festivals across North America and Europe including the Newport, Detroit, Ravinia, Las Vegas, Sedona, Spokane & Monterey Jazz Festivals. Their hour-long concert at Sierra Nevada Brewery BBQ has been broadcast on the nationally syndicated program: Sierra Center Stage. The BBQ was chosen to kick off the New Year a few years ago with an hour-long, coast-to-coast live broadcast on Toast of the Nation on National Public Radio. Their Koch release, Classified, earned rave reviews from All About Jazz: Once again the BBQ attains that rarefied level where music is both relaxed and expressive, and their joy in its creation is contagious. Theres really nothing out there that comes close to their unique brand of inventiveness.
These versatile musicians also collaborate with orchestras, and in 2006 ignited the Salt Lake City Jazz Festival by playing with the Utah Symphony, conducted by Keith Lockhart. With Chris Brubecks compositions as a vehicle, the BBQ has joined with chamber groups to collaborate with musicians from the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Russian National Symphony Orchestra.
The Brubeck Brothers Quartets debut Koch recording, Intuition, impressed the national jazz media and spent several weeks in the top ten radio charts while earning enthusiastic reviews from JazzTimes, Downbeat, Boston Globe and many other respected publications. Intuition was measure for measure one of the hardest swinging sets of the year. (Philadelphia Inquirer)
Although the quartets style is rooted in straight-ahead jazz, their concerts reveal an inherent ability to explore and play odd time signatures while naturally integrating the influences of funk, blues and world music. The groups creativity, technique and improvisation can be heard in their uncompromising music, which reflects their dedication to melody, rhythm, culture and the spontaneous spirit of jazz.
