The Neil Maya Quartet
Let this superb quartet, immerse you in the cool sounds of one of the world’s greatest Jazz bands - The Dave Brubeck 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.
The Totnes based musician Neil Maya is collaborating with 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 the outstandingly talented young jazz pianist Matt Carter, from Honiton, playing Dave Brubeck’s challenging compositions, along with Nick Carter on drums, Kevin Sanders on double Bass and Neil himself on alto saxophone.
This dynamic quartet has been touring to packed venues with this fantastic project for the last eighteen months and has now recorded an excellent live CD and DVD of ‘The Brubeck Project’ which is also available for purchase.
Performing mainly Dave Brubeck Quartet originals the band will also play one or two of their own compostions and standards.
So expect a great night of some of the best known and coolest jazz on the planet. You won’t be disappointed.
