Share This:

University of the Pacific’s Brubeck Institute will present the Twelfth Annual Brubeck Festival, titled Dave Brubeck Across Time, which honors the piano and composing legend’s legacy as a jazz giant with Stockton, California roots. The 2013 Festival is a broad-based tribute to his legacy that covers the spectrum of jazz in its fullest expression: live concert performances ranging from jazz legends to local bands (in civic concert halls and college campuses as well as jazz clubs), a documentary film about jazz history, jazz education talks/symposia, the spiritually inspired works of Dave Brubeck, and street/community-based jazz events, from Monday, March 18, through Saturday, March 23.

Besides three major concerts – by trumpeter Tom Harrell’s quintet at San Joaquin Delta College on Thursday, March 21; by the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, under the direction of trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, at the Bob Hope Theatre on Friday, March 22; and by the Brubeck Brothers Quartet at the University’s Faye Spanos Concert Hall on Saturday, March 23 – the Festival will feature nightly performances at the Take 5 Jazz Club; talks by Marsalis, jazz composer and historian Gunther Schuller, and his son George Schuller; and a screening of the rarely seen film Music Inn. Pre-festival activities have included outreach to over 7500 Stockton schoolchildren in the form of concerts and competitions.
