"Stravinsky said that composition is selective improvisation, meaning that the same kernel of an idea that you have up on the stand as a jazz musician is the same one you write down as a composer."

Grammy-nominated composer Chris Brubeck continues to distinguish himself as an innovative performer and composer.  An award-winning composer, he is clearly tuned into the pulse of contemporary music.  John von Rhein, music critic for The Chicago Tribune, calls Chris:  “a composer with a real flair for lyrical melody–a 21st Century Lenny Bernstein.”
