This year's 12th Annual Brubeck Festival was held Monday, March 18 through Saturday, March 23, 2013. The Festival, titled Dave Brubeck Across Time, was a broad-based tribute to his legacy.
In addition to the three headline artists - Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, the Tom Harrell Quintet and the Brubeck Brothers Quartet - the Festival featured nightly performances at the Take 5 Jazz Club, a screening of the rarely seen documentary film about jazz history, Music Inn; a symposia, Jazz Leadership Across Time with Gunther Schuller and Wynton Marsalis; a performance of the spiritually inspired works of Dave Brubeck, and the integration of street/community-based jazz events.
Other Festival events included "The French Quarter," a New Orleans-inspired street fair on the afternoon of March 22 that featured live music, jugglers, fortune-tellers, food, and the unveiling of a semi-permanent display of winning art in the Downtown Stockton Alliance's "Dave Brubeck's Music Inspires My Imagination" contest, and Jazz on the Green on March 23, held on the University of the Pacific campus.
