Thursday September 22

The Darius Brubeck Quartet
- “In Their Own Sweet Way”

Crazy Coqs, Brasserie Zedel, 20 Sherwood Street, London W1F 7ED

Darius Brubeck, son of the legendary Dave Brubeck, and an inspiring international jazz pianist in his own right, returns to Crazy Coqs, with his Quartet, following his sold out 2021 concert, celebrating the Centenary of his late father.

Successful international tours have continued and his most recent album The Darius Brubeck Quartet: Live in Poland, recorded at the end of their historic 2018 sold out tour and released in December, 2019. Live in Poland was given four stars in the May 2020 issue of Downbeat, five stars in the March issue of Jazzwise and praised in The Financial Times.

The group's most recent recording reflects their international profile. As well as the usual European circuit they have in recent years played in Russia, Saudi Arabia and Sicily. Nearer to home his sold out appearances and acclaimed evenings at Ronnie Scotts and Pizza Express Jazz Club, demanded we bring Darius, with his quartet, to Crazy Coqs for their second appearance.

During the 1970s, Darius toured the world with Two Generations of Brubeck and The New Brubeck Quartet. He moved to South Africa in 1983, initiating the first degree course in Jazz Studies offered by an African university, eventually founding the Centre for Jazz and Popular Music.

Following the success of the CD “Cathy's Summer", featuring many new Darius Brubeck compositions, and their follow up album "Years Ago", this concert of acoustic music - melodic, spontaneous, rhythmic and engaging, will include standards, South African jazz and ever-popular Dave Brubeck music.

Enjoy Darius and the Quartet’s appearance, a couple of years ago, at the VR Jazz Festival in Moscow
