Enjoy a taste of the best improvised music from Ireland with two very different takes on a no-chords saxophone trio, featuring some of Ireland’s finest musicians.
The RBG Trio is a collective group of fearless improvisers based in Ireland who thrive on ensemble interplay, challenging the roles of each instrument over a broad spectrum of grooves and textures. Tenor saxophonist, Meilana Gillard, double-bassist Dave Redmond and drummer Kevin Brady have more than two decades experience playing and producing their own albums.
The Eoin O'Halloran Trio, led by bassist and composer Eoin O’Halloran explores open jazz improvisation combined with electronic processing and traditional Irish and world music influences. With an emphasis on simplicity and clarity, the music is accented by catchy hooks and landmarks, combined with broader themes by the instincts of long-standing collaborators Yuzuha O'Halloran on alto saxophone and drummer Hugh Denman. Every performance is a unique display of musical interaction.
