"Kilkenny saxophonist Adam Nolan cut his improv teeth on the Parade outside Kilkenny Castle, developing a street-wise sound that combines Coltrane and free jazz with hip-hop, funk and psychedelia."– Cormac Larkin, The Irish Times
Adam Nolan is a free jazz saxophonist based in Ireland.
In the past 3 years he has become known as one of the most fearless jazz musicians on the planet. Each album is completely concept based and all improvised. Striving to create new scenes and landscapes with a bold edge unlike anything currently on the scene. His authenticity comes from his modern approach with old school style concepts. A very interesting character and is completely in it for innovation and the desire for a new way of creativity to spread throughout the globe. Working with some of the best improvisers on the scene and constantly changing his game up he is the real deal.
Each show is completely different and all the music is 100 percent improvised, completely based on the energy of the environment and the audience. Perfect for festivals and live shows as the ever changing sound will never leave the listener bored. This is what he lives for. An adventure of a lifetime the world has been waiting for. Pure honest raw improvisation. Energy and meditation are the driving force in the philosophy and preparation for such mind blowing music.
