KUVO’s performance series “On Stage” revisits a broadcast recorded at Vail Square at the Vail Jazz Festival with a celebration of Dave Brubeck by pianist Chuck Lamb.

Chuck Lamb comes by his affection for the “Brubeck sound” honestly. His tribute album (“Lambinizations II: A Tribute to Dave Brubeck,” 2011) won accolades from Brubeck himself. The New York native has handled the 88s for the Brubeck Brothers Quartet since 2002. Earlier, Lamb is noted for his seminal work with the breakthrough fusion band Dry Jack. He’s played with symphonies and major jazz artists including Ray Charles, Bela Fleck, Peter Frampton, Richie Cole, Ernestine Anderson, and more!

Dave Brubeck’s centennial celebration (Dec. 6, 2020) was restrained due to the pandemic. In the summer of 2021, Chuck wanted to celebrate Dave Brubeck’s 101st in a big way. Chuck’s band that night included Mike Marlier at drums, Bill McCrossen at bass, and Bob Rebholz holding down the saxophone parts.

Chuck Lamb has played at the KUVO Studios before, but you’ll want to hear him under the stars on the next “On Stage” with host Susan Gatshet on Monday, July 25, at 7 pm. Only on KUVO JAZZ, the Oasis in the City!
