DARIUS BRUBECK QUARTET featuring DAVE O’HIGGINS –
Saturday 14th April at the Grand Pavilion Porthcawl – £20
” Darius, the eldest [of Dave Brubeck’s sons] and most visually like his father, plays stylish piano and knows the score. ” – Jack Massarik, Evening Standard.
“ the combination of Brubeck & O’Higgins is certainly among the best piano/sax partnerships in the UK.” – Jazzwise Mag, 2015.
The DARIUS BRUBECK QUARTET celebrated a decade together when they launched their latest cd, “YEARS AGO” at Ronnie Scotts earlier this year. Darius, the eldest son of the late, great Dave Brubeck, is a noted jazz pianist, composer, educator and band-leader in his own right and appears here leading his brilliant quartet featuring long-running collaborator and peerless saxophonist Dave O’Higgins.
“A stunning player in the neo-bop vein, with an apparently effortless flow of coherent ideas, beautiful time and a highly developed harmonic sense.” JAZZ GUIDE
