In November 2001, a local Sacramento jazz group that I perform with called Capital Jazz Project presented a concert of all Dave Brubeck music. The director of the Brubeck Institute, JB Dyas, was in attendance and asked if the group would repeat the performance at the Brubeck festival the following year. He also asked if I would come in and teach Dave's music to the Institute students for a week in December 2002. After teaching Dave's music to the students there, I submitted a report to JB as to my endeavors. JB copied the letter to Dave Brubeck. Dave was impressed, and sent me all of his published music because I thought there might be some other compositions I might like to share with the students.
I thought it was such a nice gesture from Dave and I took many of the tunes over to the Institute to play with Joe and Justin (the bassist
and drummer at the Institute). As we read thru the tunes, they instantly sounded modern and fresh because of the approach of the rhythm
section. I rearranged the tunes to fit both Dave's ideals and the talents of the band. I thought the least I could do was record what we had done and send it to Dave. His response; "I am truly amazed with the trio’s imaginative interpretations of my music. I laughed and hollered out loud at every track, hearing their rhythmic, harmonic and swinging versions of my tunes."— Joe Gilman
Joe Sanders began his musical training with bassist Catherine McGinn of the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and was a member of the Symphony’s Youth Orchestra for five years. One of the finest young bassists in the country, he continues to study both classical music and jazz, currently studying with Christian McBride and Jeff Chambers. Justin Brown has performed at several jazz festivals around the world — as a member of the
National 2002 GRAMMY High School Jazz Combo; the 1999 Monterey and 2002 San Francisco Jazz Festival all-star high school bands; and with Berkeley High’s award-winning jazz ensemble and combo.
