“Profound world blues passage… extremely distinctive pieces, driven by a seductive rhythmic circularity that’s a keystone of Malian traditional tunes and Delta blues.”  BILLBOARD MAGAZINE

For many years, Markus James has been traveling in Mali and recording unique, Blues-influenced music with traditional Wassoulou and Sonrai musicians. This has led to excellent critical acclaim for the recordings, film, and live performances which have evolved from these true cross-cultural collaborations.  In the US, Markus performs with Malian artists playing Kameme n’goni, the 8-stringed hunter’s harp of the Wassoulou people, kurubu and njarka violin of the Sonrai people, as well as calabash and Bolon, the 3-stringed gourd bass.

 

The music features vocals which alternate between Bambara, Sonrai, and English.
His collaborations in Timbuktu with Hamma Sankare (Calabash player on Ali Farka Toure’s tours and albums), Hassi Sare (master of the one-stringed Njarka violin), and Solo Sidibe (who plays the Kamele N’Goni, the hunter’s harp of the Wassoulou people) are the subject of the documentary film “Timbuktoubab”. This group has performed at the Festival In The Desert in 2003 and 2004, as well as in Timbuktu and other towns and villages in Northern Mali.  In the US, Markus tours with The Wassonrai, featuring Wassoulou musician Mamadou Sidibe, and Amadou Camara.  They have performed on numerous radio shows, including PRI / BBC’s “The World”.

Brubeck Brothers Quartet

Chris and Dan Brubeck have been making music together practically all their lives.  Drummer Dan and bassist, trombonist, and composer Chris cut their first record together in 1966—nearly a half century ago. They’ve subsequently played a variety of styles in a number of different groups, as well as with their father, jazz giant Dave Brubeck, and with their own Brubeck Brothers Quartet. With Dan and Chris as the foundation, guitarist Mike DeMicco and pianist Chuck Lamb, complete this dynamic quartet.  They perform at concert series, colleges, and jazz festivals across North America and Europe including the Newport, Detroit, Montreal, Playboy/Hollywood Bowl, and Monterey Jazz Festivals.

The Quartet’s last cd, TimeLine, celebrated Dave Brubeck’s famous 1958 State Department tour.  The CD received extensive airplay in major jazz markets across America and was a hit on the Jazz Week radio charts for five months.  The CD garnered dozens of stellar reviews, among them Dr. Judith Schlesinger of AllAboutJazz who wrote of TimeLine, “An exciting ride. These are magnificent players whose years together have forged a seasoned and well-oiled musical unit… Their joy in this playing, and each other, is audible.  Apart from its historic value—this is an exciting and varied outing, recorded crisply and with great warmth. The ‘Timeline’ it reflects is not just in years, but also in a legacy which—lucky for all of us—continues its powerful forward movement today.”

These versatile musicians also collaborate with or­chestras all across the U.S. as well as internationally. With Chris Brubeck’s compositions as a vehicle, the BBQ has performed with chamber/orchestral groups such as the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Russian National Symphony Orchestra and the Singapore Chinese Orchestra.
