Three pivotal players on the Irish jazz scene take time out for an evening’s music in homage to the masterful John Coltrane. Thirty years since his death, the great tenor casts a long shadow into jazz’s second century, and his emotive and spiritual music reached a creative summit that few have conquered since. Coltrane’s extended modal improvisations demand a stamina of both player and listener that is out of vogue in jazz today, but that’s not a criticism that could be levelled at saxophonist Michael Buckley, and the bass and drums unit of Ronan and Conor Guilfoyle. Together they form a formidable unit, exploring the classic saxophone trio format in an evening of individual virtuosity and intense contemporary swing.
