More about the Brubeck Brothers Quartet
Rooted in “straight-ahead” jazz, the Brubeck Brothers Quartet integrates the influences of funk, blues, and world music in their dedication to the melody, rhythm, culture, and spontaneous spirit of jazz.
Chris and Dan Brubeck have been making music together practically all their lives. Drummer Dan and bassist, trombonist, and composer Chris cut their first record together in 1966—nearly a half-century ago. They’ve subsequently played a variety of styles in a number of different groups, as well as with their father, jazz giant Dave Brubeck, and with their own Brubeck Brothers Quartet. With Dan and Chris as the foundation, guitarist Mike DeMicco and pianist Chuck Lamb complete this dynamic quartet. They perform at concert series, colleges, and jazz festivals across North America and Europe including the Newport, Detroit, Montreal, Playboy/Hollywood Bowl, and Monterey Jazz Festivals.
The Quartet’s last album, TimeLine, celebrated Dave Brubeck's famous 1958 State Department tour, received extensive airplay in major jazz markets across America, and was a hit on the JazzWeek radio charts for five months.
These versatile musicians also collaborate with orchestras all across the US as well as internationally. With Chris Brubeck’s compositions as a vehicle, the quartet has performed with chamber/orchestral groups such as the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Russian National Symphony Orchestra, and the Singapore Chinese Orchestra.
