Chris Brubeck’s Triple Play

Chris Brubeck returns to Chautauqua Auditorium, this time with his group Triple Play. Triple Play is the name given to three outstanding and versatile musicians, Peter Madcat Ruth (on harmonica, guitar, jaw harp, percussion & vocals), Joel Brown (folk and classical acoustic guitar and vocals), and Chris Brubeck (electric bass, bass trombone, piano and vocals).  Collectively they bring a rare level of joy, virtuosity and American spirit to the folk, blues, jazz and classical music they perform.

Brubeck and Ruth have toured and recorded together in different settings since 1969, first as young rock musicians in the group “New Heavenly Blue” and then as jazz musicians touring the world with Dave Brubeck.  Chris Brubeck went on to form the group Crofut & Brubeck with the uniquely talented banjo player Bill Crofut. Together they recorded the acclaimed CDs“Across Your Dreams” and “Bach to Brubeck,” recorded at Abbey Road Studios with the London Symphony Orchestra.

Crofut passed away in 1999, and Ruth joined Brubeck and Brown to form the group Triple Play.  This trio’s recordings include “Triple Play Live,” Watching the World” and “Live at Arthur Zankel Music Center.”

With an ever-expanding repertoire, the Trio continues to play in concert halls, clubs, and festivals all over the country, including performing many of Chris’s symphonic arrangements with orchestras across the U.S.   Recently  they played a set at the Monterey Jazz Festival and later that evening were featured in the premiere of Dave Brubeck’s Cannery Row Suite.

“Triple Play was rollicking good fun … led by bassist, trombonist and pianist Chris Brubeck, the trio stole the show with its flair and virtuosity.” - Mark Swed, L.A.Times
