Oct. 22: Brubeck Brothers at Lincoln Theater

Posted By on Wed, Oct 21, 2009 at 2:28 PM

While Dave Brubeck’s son Matt has splintered off on an experimental path as cellist with Evan Parker, Tom Waits, the Club Foot Orchestra and his acclaimed spazz-jazz group Oranj Symphonette, his other sons, Chris and Daniel, are content to walk the straight jazz line as the Brubeck Brothers. Both accompanied their father for many years, playing classics like “Take Five” and “Blue Rondo a la Turk” around the world, and their chemistry is rhythmic as well as brotherly. In their quartet, the melodic pianist Chuck Lamb and the tasteful guitarist Mike DeMicco are often overlooked, but the quartet’s originals, plus a few well-placed compositions by Brubeck Sr., wouldn’t be as fluid with any other players. Take time out and see them on Thursday, Oct. 22, at the Lincoln Theater. 100 California Drive, Yountville. 8pm. $25–$35. 707.944.1300.Gabe Meline
