Wednesday, Feb. 22, from 8 to 10 p.m. Sedona International Film Festival presents "Jazz Stretch" featuring the Brubeck Brothers Quartet in partnership with the Arizona Music Fest.

This one-night-only event at the Sedona Performing Arts Center, 995 Upper Red Rock Loop Road, is a new fund raiser this year.

The world-renowned, internationally acclaimed Brubeck Brothers Quartet is an exciting jazz group featuring two members of one of America's most accomplished musical families, Daniel Brubeck (drums,) and Chris Brubeck (bass & trombone.) Guitarist Mike DeMicco, and pianist Chuck Lamb complete this dynamic quartet.  They have performed at concert series, colleges, and jazz festivals across North America and Europe including the Newport, Detroit, Ravinia, Las Vegas, Sedona, Spokane & Monterey Jazz Festivals.

These versatile musicians also collaborate with orchestras, and in 2006 ignited the Salt Lake City Jazz Festival by playing with the Utah Symphony conducted by Keith Lockhart. With Chris Brubeck's compositions as a vehicle, the BBQ has joined with chamber groups to collaborate with musicians from the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Russian National Symphony Orchestra.

The Brubeck Brothers Quartet's debut Koch recording, Intuition, impressed the national jazz media and spent several weeks in the top 10 radio charts while earning enthusiastic reviews from JazzTimes, Downbeat, Boston Globe and many other respected publications.   Although the quartet's style is rooted in "straight-ahead" jazz, their concerts reveal an inherent ability to explore and play odd time signatures while naturally integrating the influences of funk, blues and world music.

The group's creativity, technique and improvisation can be heard in their uncompromising music, which reflects their dedication to melody, rhythm, culture and the spontaneous spirit of jazz.

Tickets for the Brubeck Brothers Quartet are only $12 each (or you may use your festival pass or ticket package to reserve your ticket).

For more information, call SIFF at (928) 282-1177.
