A return to the Pendulum for Métier, limbering up for two days in the studio immediately following this gig. As Dun Laoghaire Rathdown County Council's Jazz Ensemble in Residence, the band is the first of its kind here, following similar initiatives around Ireland in classical music, and is just one strand of an innovative project that has also featured schools workshops and performances by international artists like cellist Vincent Courtois.

With a line up that convenes five of the strongest musicians in Ireland today to play their own compositions, Metier is a potent assembly, and Michael Buckley (saxophones), Paul Williamson (trumpet), Justin Carroll (piano) and Sean Carpio (drums) join the project's leader, bassist Ronan Guilfoyle, in a quintet that fairly bristles with creative energy.
