SYJO - Hommage a Dave Brubeck

Hommage a Dave Brubeck

April 21, 2017 in KUK Aarau
Hommage a Dave Brubeck is a tribute in honor of one of the foremost American exponents of cool jazz. As a jazz pianist, composer and band leader the late Dave Brubeck was a master in both refined and bombastic styles as he integrated classical influences into his music with ease. He is known to employ unusual time signatures, contrasting rhythms, meters and tonalities in good taste. One of the best remembered pieces played by his quartet is “Take Five”, which is in 5/4 time. However at Jazzaar Festival his music will be arranged and subtly re-interpreted for a jazz orchestra by some of its prolific writers.
Musical director Fritz K Renold (CH) has gathered some good old friends to join him to pay hommage to Dave Brubeck. These are Ryan Quigley (UK) – Ltp, Bobby Watson (US) – as, fl, Marques Young (US/MY) – tb, Jeremy Monteiro (SG) – p, Rudi Engel (DE) – b, and Billy Cobham (PN) – dr. Together with the up and coming Swiss Youth Jazz Orchestra they’re all set to conjure up some magical moments for all Brubeck fans as well as Jazz lovers.
