Michael Buckley’s Dublin Standard Time - Pendulum
Michael Buckley’s Dublin Standard Time
Here’s a proposition for you. Ireland’s finest ever saxophonist in good company with the best of his own generation, playing the greatest of the songs that have reverberated through jazz and popular music over the last century. You might be forgiven for thinking this will be an ad hoc affair, but think again. With Dublin Standard Time, Buckley is offering a forensic and fully committed approach to the jazz standard, and the band, which also features Myles Drennan on fender Rhodes along with bassist Michael Coady and drummer Sean Carpio will exhaust all the possibilities offered by its current set list, before moving on to other songs from the standard canon. First up in a regular series of band encounters are evergreens like Sophisticated Lady, Everything I Love and Without a Song, tunes that will be the catalyst for invigorating blowing, deep grooving and the pursuit of a real band signature.
