Chris Brubeck will bring his very own French Connection to Wilton Library’s Brubeck Room on Wednesday, Dec. 4, for a special midweek concert. From 7 to 8:30 that evening, Mr. Brubeck and his ensemble, featuring saxophonist Guillaume Saint-James and accordionist Didier Ithurssary, will present a number of pieces designed to show off the “flavor” of a French influence on American jazz.
“They are here because we are doing some composing and some recording” related to an orchestral project called Brothers in Art, Mr. Brubeck told The Bulletin on Monday. “They said it would be great to play some music for some Americans. And I said, ‘I know the perfect place!’ You know, I have friends in town, and I told them, ‘I brought some people back from musical safari, now come to hear them!’”
