CHRIS BRUBECK and DAN BRUBECK are extensions of a remarkable jazz legacy. Although they toured and recorded with their father extensively, the immensely popular and influential jazz innovator Dave Brubeck, Chris and Dan have forged their own musical identities.
Bass player and trombonist Chris and drummer Dan have previously released four albums with their band BRUBECK BROTHERS QUARTET. Along with their musical compatriots, MIKE DeMICCO on guitar and CHUCK LAMB on piano, they are releasing their newest CD, TIMELINE, celebrating the 60th anniversary of Dave Brubeck’s seminal State Department Tour as an official jazz ambassador for the United States.
Chris and Dan honed their chops working in Dave’s band for many years, but they also struck out on their own, with each touring and recording in different groups and styles through the years. The brothers’ fresh take on their father’s classic tunes as well as their own original compositions reflect the diversity of their experiences and their instinct to incorporate new ideas in their music.
On TIMELINE the Brubeck Brothers Quartet explore odd time signatures while integrating the blues, contemporary jazz, and world music. The band is not afraid to take chances and pushes the envelope to create a rewarding and inventive musical journey.
Chris Brubeck – electric bass, bass trombone
Dan Brubeck – drums, hand drums, percussion
