Orchestral Program

When the Brubeck Brothers Quartet collaborates with an Orchestra, they tend to play many compositions made famous by the Dave Brubeck Quartet.  This can be a good hook for an audience and it is a natural outgrowth of the many orchestral arrangements Chris Brubeck has done for Dave over the years.  If the Orchestra marketing department feels it is helpful, they are comfortable with calling this program "The Brubeck Brothers Quartet Salutes the Music of Dave Brubeck".  Dan and Chris Brubeck have played these compositions most of their lives and performed and/or recorded them with the likes of the London Symphony Orchestra, the Utah Symphony Orchestra (with Keith Lockhart), Spokane Symphony (with Eckhart Preu), the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra and the Russian National Symphony Orchestra.   
 
The Boston Globe wrote "The Brubeck Brothers Quartet brings a new spirit to straight-ahead jazz."  Dan Brubeck's jaw-dropping solos onTake Five have brought audiences all over the world to their feet.  Chris Brubeck is an affable frontman and his versatility as a much-in-demand composer, arranger, and performer on bass and trombone makes him a unique talent in the music world.  Mike DeMicco's technical prowess on the guitar always impresses, and Chuck Lamb is a superb and soulful pianist with an endlessly creative musical imagination.
