THE GRILLY BROTHERS STUDIO WILL BE DEBUTING A GREAT NEW SHOW TO PAY TRIBUTE TO A LANDMARK SHIFT IN JAZZ! THIS CONCERT WILL BE PERFORMED BY SOME OF CHICAGO’S BEST MUSICIANS.

A tribute to Dave Brubeck’s compositions in world rhythms, playing selections from his groundbreaking Jazz recordings, “Time Out,””Time Further Out,” and “Countdown – Time In Outer Space.” 

” Brubeck’s explorations beyond the basic 4/4 beat are at the heart of his musical life, and certainly represent his greatest contribution to modern jazz. With this music, he and his bandmates developed complexities of meter and rhythm that are every bit as ingenious as those of other artists that are considered to be more ‘authentic’. That so few people listen carefully enough to hear just how much is going on in this music is testament to how effortless the DBQ made it sound, and to how good Brubeck was at wedding these rhythmic oddities to memorable melodies in a way that still swung…

A listen with fresh ears will reveal how ingenious, how radical (this was 1959 !), and how utterly compelling the best of this music is.”
