Darius Brubeck Quartet

LONDON Kings Place (Hall One)

Directions

Dave Brubeck’s ground-breaking explorations into unusual time signatures turned the jazz world on its head back in the late 50s with the global hit Take Five.   

Darius Brubeck tips his hat to the family legacy- an appropriate contribution to Kings Place’s year of Time Unwrapped - with his father’s hits acting as the jumping off point for new music that is in part inspired by years working in South Africa.

Saxophonist Dave O’Higgins has long been one of Britain’s finest, and bassist Matt Ridley and drummer Wesley Gibbens complete a fine quartet whose melodic, spontaneous, rhythmic and engaging music is the hallmark of a band whose collective dynamic reflects its ten year history.

The combination of Brubeck and O’Higgins is certainly among the best piano/sax partnerships in the UK
