Brubeck Project with Neil Maya Quartet
27 April | 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm| £14
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 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. Coupled with a few standards and possibly one or two originals this should be a real night to remember.
The band, features four outstanding jazz musicians including Neil on alto saxophone, ably playing Dave Brubeck’s challenging compositions alongside piano, double bass and drums. This well- rehearsed and dynamic band has been touring with this fantastic project for the last two years and has now recorded an excellent live CD and DVD of the project which is also available for purchase.
