Berks Jazz Fest 2007: Dave Brubeck - Ankle injury sidelines legend

Brubeck concert reset for April 27

The Dave Brubeck Quartet had been scheduled to open the 17th annual FirstEnergy Berks Jazz Fest.

Now the acclaimed group will be performing in Reading a month after the festival has concluded its 10-day run.

The Berks Arts Council announced today that the 86-year-old Brubeck suffered a setback over the weekend in his recovery from surgery for a blood clot and infection that were triggered by a recent ankle injury.

Consequently, he and his quartet now will perform on Friday, April 27 at 7:30 p.m. at the Sovereign Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $46 and $39.

All tickets will be honored on that date for the show, which first was scheduled for Friday, March 16, and then first rescheduled for Wednesday, March 21.

Brubeck's setback over the weekend forced his doctors to be even further protective of his infection situation.

Hence, the switch of the concert to its own special BJF date on April 27.
