The DARIUS BRUBECK QUARTET is celebrating a decade together.
'Darius showed without doubt that he is a highly accomplished pianist and composer-but Dave O’Higgins must take huge credit for his contribution (as should Ridley & Gibbens) – as the combination of Brubeck and O’Higgins is certainly among the best piano/sax partnerships in the UK.' Tim Dickeson, JAZZWISE MAY 2015
The Quartet recently thrilled audiences at sold-out concerts at the Cheltenham, Cork, Swansea and Glasgow Jazz Festivals, as well as local venues throughout the UK and overseas. Every member of the group is deservedly featured and the group dynamic continues to grow.
Building on the popularity and critical success of their new CD, Years Ago, this experienced group always delivers beyond the very high expectations of audiences & critics alike.
The live performances feature Darius Brubeck compositions, standards, South African jazz and ever-popular Dave Brubeck music.
Dave O’Higgins with his great range of feeling and skill excels playing this varied repertoire with the rhythm trio of Darius, Matt and Wes. Their mutual understanding and interaction is always a pleasure to see and hear, their acoustic sound is melodic, spontaneous, rhythmic and engaging.
