Brubeck is Brewing

This coming week could be said to be Brubeck Week. Not only do we have Brubecks Play Brubeck at The Sage, Gateshead on Tuesday, Nov. 30 (7:30pm) - see interview - but on the same night, at the same time on BBC4 there is some Jazz 625 archive footage from 1964 of the original Brubeck Quartet.
On BBC4 later that week, on Friday Dec 3, there is an Arena program - Dave Brubeck: In His Own Sweet Way. It is shown from 9:00pm - 10:30pm.
All in all a good week for those, of which I am one, who are Brubeckly inclined.
Lance.

Hi Lance

Once brewed...yet more Brubeck. Radio 2 broadcasts a two part interview with Brubeck senior. Jamie Cullum's weekly programme sees Young Brit Turk talking with Venerable Turk. Pt 1-Tuesday 30th November(7:00 pm), pt 2 -Tuesday December 7th (7:00 pm)continues the chat and features the Brubeck sons in performance. Over on Radio Radio 4 on 3rd December (11:30 am)there is a half hour documentary about the man and his music.
