Upcoming Jazz & Blues Gigs

Hey after missing Henri Texier's Quintet for the second time ( ) I was wondering if I could set up this thread with the aim of letting people know if there's a jazz/blues gigs definitely worth going to coming up? If anybody wants to add anything to it go on ahead. Cheers.

Just a note to say any I'll be pruning this thread every so often as the gigs pass.

NB: if you want to discuss a particular gig then start a new thread, don't post here.

These guys are good, and I only chanced on them

Highly reccommend the Sunday afternoon session 2 to 4pm by the Dublin City Big Band in Kielys in Mount Merrion on a Sunday afternoon. More Jazzy than their title suggests. A great line up, some of the best talent around and some great interpretations and a cool way to spend a sunday afternoon, and , no, I am not connected with the Band. The gig is not being actively promoted other than on Kiely's website and these guys deserve to be heard by a bigger crowd. And I am not connected with Kielys either! Just an ordinary joe. So come on people why not make it a great atmosphere and turn up next Sunday at Kielys (Mount Merrion not Donnybrook)

Improvised Music Company presents
Francesco Turrisi Trio
Francesco Turrisi – Piano | Sean Carpio – Drums | Dan Bodwell - Double Bass

John Field Room, National Concert Hall, Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin 2
Tickets: €15
Book: + 353 (0)1 417 0000*****

“Delightful, unusual, decidedly un-Irish jazz.”The Sunday Tribune

Turin born Francesco Turrisi was formerly harpsichordist with acclaimed baroque ensemble l’Arpeggiata, experience he has put to productive use since becoming firmly established in Ireland.

These days he’s a pivotal member of Balkan group Yurodny and also leads Tarab, a small group experimenting with different elements of Irish traditional, Mediterranean and medieval music. Adding to these he leads Gato Azul, a group who draw inspiration from the endless well of Brazilian music.

In piano trio with bassist Dan Bodwell and drummer Sean Carpio, these elements are further expanded on and their debut CD Si Dolce È Il Tormento was released this year to widespread acclaim. Described by The Irish Times as ‘exquisite', the music is imbued with the reflective aesthetic of the great German label ECM whilst drawing inspiration from early music and Italian folk melodies.

Its further evidence of the abundant creativity at work from this open minded and lyrical pianist.

Francesco Turrisi Trio will play the John Field Room of the National Concert Hall on Wednesday 16th September at 8pm. Tickets are available from NCH box office on 01 417 0000 or from the website
