In the group they came in early two-thousand already as musicians with the name. Chuck in the mid-90s, he founded a pioneering jazz fusion group Dry Jack, and Mike managed to take part in the largest jazz festivals."Yes, "honorary brothers" - as we call them. We go way back.

In the press, the tour was called " the next big thing in "iron curtain". Himself Brubeck-senior later recalled that with such inspiration, as in the USSR, did not play half a dozen years. Recording of a concert in Moscow, he even issued a separate plate."We are all influenced by the great Dave Brubeck. Sons too, of course, but Chris is their language, their songs, and their vision. Every musician wants to get away from their idol, even if he is your father," says Igor Butman.The program only works by Chris Brubeck. Each with a romantic name: "Dunes at dawn", "the Hunt for the soul", "Blues and more". The first ovation, as usual, after the first song. During the intermission, Chris and Dan will share that regret that can't come to the capital with his father, Dave Brubeck. This year he turns 92 years. But a warm welcome in his beloved Moscow could be the best gift.Source: Brubeck Brothers gave a concert in Moscow.
