“Miami’s Own” Duo Brubeck will return to WDNA, the home of serious jazz, and the University of Miami, Frost School of Music Jazz Hour on Thursday August 1st at 11:00 am. The group, featuring Lindsey Blair on guitar and David Brubeck on bass trombone, will present an hour long live performance intermingled with short interviews by host Chuck Bergeron-an outstanding jazz bassist and Professor at the University.
Featuring Lindsey Blair, is an exciting and innovative jazz duo that celebrates the rich tradition of the jazz guitar and trombone duo, with a twist! A favorite of numerous local concert series (Music in Miami, Cleveland Clinic Distinguished Artsists, Arts & Letters Day, Christ Church, Arts in Miami….) and international festivals, Duo Brubeck has also appeared with the Miami Civic Chorale and been featured at the Coral Gables Museum and on jazz radio station WDNA FM.
Was selected by Miami New Times as Best Jazz Musician 2011. As an official guitarist for SÃ¡bado Gigante with Don Francisco, Lindsey Blair has played alongside Daddy Yankee, but it was Wes Montgomery who got him started on the guitar, and jazz is where his heart is. The Indiana native studied at the University of Miami for his bachelor and master degrees, and he has toured with Maynard Ferguson and played with Dizzy Gillespie. Blair also has collaborated with Gloria and Emilio Estefan including a performance onstage with Miami Sound Machine for Super Bowl XLI. Blair’s current chart-topping album, â€œAll Wes All Dayâ€ is extraordinary! Lindsey Blair also serves as a guitarist at Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church and with Duo Brubeck.
