“This band never fails to delight… Majestic” Jazz Journal
Perhaps best known for hits like Take Five and Blue Rondo à la Turk from his album Time Out, the legendary jazz giant and Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Dave Brubeck is iconic for his innovation in the West Coast jazz movement.
Paying tribute to his father’s music in the jazz master’s centenary year, pianist and composer Darius Brubeck teams up with saxophonist Dave O’Higgins, bassist Matt Ridley and drummer Wesley Gibbens for their Hong Kong debut, after critically acclaimed international tours and sold-out shows at major jazz houses in London. Their first concert at City Hall features ever-popular Dave Brubeck hits and original tunes by Darius. Their second concert at the Fringe Club features two sets of South African jazz and jazz standards—an evening to chill out with the best jazz tunes and, of course, a drink (or more)!
