Darius Brubeck Quartet @ Dean Street

The Darius Brubeck Quartet
return to Dean Street, to celebrate their new CD 'Cathy's Summer'. The quartet will be playing many of the new Darius Brubeck compositions featured on this album, as well as audience favourites, jazz standards and some ever-popular Dave Brubeck music. In addition to Darius’ catchy up-tempo tunes, the new recording features soulful renderings of ballads like 'Flamingo' and 'I Don’t Stand a Ghost of a Chance with You'.
Dave O’Higgins with his great range of feel and skill excels playing these tunes with the rhythm trio of Darius, Matt and Wes, who have been together for 8 years. Their mutual understanding and interaction is always a pleasure to hear and witness.
Playing to sold-out houses at regional festivals and clubs, their acoustic sound is melodic, spontaneous, rhythmic and engaging.
