THE BRUBECK PROJECT With the Neil Maya Quartet 

For many people, the sound of Dave Brubeck’s ‘Take 5’ is the sound of jazz. This popular American pianist and composer who died just a few years ago did more than perhaps anyone to bring jazz into the popular mainstream.

Now South West based musician Neil Maya brings his quartet back to Tetbury Goods Shed after a highly successful sell out show at the centre in 2019. Neil has put together a group of some of the finest musicians in the South West to authentically reproduce the best known Dave Brubeck recordings such as ‘It’s a Raggy Waltz’, ‘Blue Rondo a la Turk’, ‘Unsquare Dance’ and of course ‘Take 5.   

The band, features some of the most outstanding jazz musicians in the Southwest today. This well- rehearsed and dynamic band has been touring with this fantastic project for the last six years and has recorded an excellent live CD and DVD of the project which is also available for purchase.

So expect a great night of some of the best known and coolest jazz on the planet. You won’t be disappointed.

“Electrifying performance from a band that has everything – crisp melody lines and improvisation to match”

The band was originally conceived by Neil Maya and pianist Tom Unwin back in 2001 soon after Neil moved to Devon. Over the years the band has played at most jazz venues in the Southwest and beyond. It’s also played at many other venues and also works for rural touring schemes throughout the country on a regular basis. The band started off playing compositions by both Neil and Tom and re-workings of standards. Over the years, other projects have also developed which have brought in other musicians as well, including: The Brubeck Project1959: The Golden Year Of Jazz and Cartoon Jazz. More occasionally, the band has also played other tributes including to Clifford Brown, Horace Silver and Herbie Hancock, often bringing in trumpeters such as Andy Hague, Dave Holdsworth and Robin Pengelley.

Also born out of the quartet is the five piece Jazz Funk Emporium and the Neil Maya, Tom Ball duo.

The Neil Maya Quartet has also gone on to form the core of the function bands, The DratPackSolar and Lush Life.
