Saturday 26 June, 7.30pm
Darius Brubeck - piano; Dave O’Higgins - tenor and soprano sax; Matt Ridley - bass; Wesley Gibbens - drums
Thaxted Festival is delighted to welcome for the first time one of jazz piano’s outstanding exponents – Darius Brubeck, with his ensemble of leading UK jazz players. As well as performing in major international venues including the Ronnie Scott Club in London, Darius has had an extensive career as a musical educator and composer, and university professor.
And if the name is familiar, yes, Darius is one of Dave Brubeck’s versatile and hugely talented musical sons. Expect to hear Darius’ own compositions, standards from the jazz repertoire and, of course, those well-known titles from his father Dave Brubeck, just as we know and love them.
This concert is sponsored by a friend of Thaxted Festival who wishes to remain anonymous.
