Take Five: Remembering Dave Brubeck
- Sunday, November 3, 2013, 2:00PM
Adult: $44 | Senior: $40 | Youth: $15
SRJO pays tribute to pioneering pianist and composer Dave Brubeck in a concert that explores his lengthy and astounding career. Brubeck's style was characterized by a rare blend of sophisticated, intellectual writing and the use of modern techniques, such as odd meter and stark harmonies, which appealed to the new "intellectual listener" of 1950s jazz. "Take Five" was the single top selling jazz hit of all time, and is just one of the many Brubeck chart-toppers featured in this concert, including "Blue Rondo a la Turk," "Take Five" and "In Your Own Sweet Way."
The Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra is a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation and enrichment of the uniquely American art form of large ensemble jazz.
