about in due time
IN DUE TIME is a performing arts collaboration that has never been presented in St. Louis by local professional artists. The performers of moSTLy TAP and moSTLy JAZZ celebrate favorites from The Dave Brubeck Quartet catalogue and challenge the audience to follow their lead as they venture through the uncommon time signatures and bright tempos that made The Dave Brubeck Quartet noteworthy.
The 75 minute (sans intermission) production features choreography by internationally renowned choreographers including Anthony J. Russo, Christian Frommelt, and our very own Maria Majors, Tommy Wasiuta, and Megan Mayer.
The Dave Brubeck Quartet
The Dave Brubeck Quartet featured Dave Brubeck (piano), Eugene Wright (bass), Joe Morello (drums), and Paul Desmond (alto sax). The musicians are best known for their experimentation with uncommon time signatures and polyrhythms. The Quartet's most recognized track is "Take Five," released in 1959 on the "Time Out" album, which is one of the biggest selling jazz albums of all time.
