Chris Guilfoyle’s Quintricacy
Chris Guilfoyle- Guitar | Peter Dobai- Tenor Sax | Leopoldo Osio- Piano | Barry Donohue- Bass | Fiach O’Brian- Drums
Quintricacy’s highly involved compositions offer a different format to the head-solo-head structure of traditional jazz tunes, but these compositions never interfere with the spontaneity of improvisation. With influences ranging from Kurt Rosenwinkel and Wayne Shorter to Meshuggah and Propagandhi, Guilfoyles compositions feature plenty of tangles and turns and a very strong sense of melody that keeps the players and audience on their toes.
Nicolas von Ritter - guitar | Darragh O’Kelly - piano | James Little - bass | Tommy Gray – drums
Eerie moods and a disturbed groove edging on the dark and dissonant, this strange and eclectic mix of Kurt Rosenwinkel infused with the metal vibes of Meshuggah is the first showcase as leader in Dublin for the Swiss guitarist and graduate of Conservatoire de Lausanne, Nicolas Von Ritter.
