As Dun Laoghaire Rathdown Jazz Ensemble in Residence, Metier is the first of its kind here, following similar initiatives around Ireland in classical music, and its just one strand of an innovative project that has also featured workshops and performances by visiting international artists. Cascade, Metier’s first CD, is an impressive affair, heralded by The Irish Times for its austere beauty, flexibility and fire. With a line up that convenes five of the strongest musicians in Ireland today to play their own compositions, Metier is certainly a potent assembly, and Michael Buckley (saxophones), Joe O’Callaghan (guitar), Justin Carroll (piano) and Sean Carpio (drums) join the project’s leader, bassist Ronan Guilfoyle, in a quintet that bristles with creative intent.
