Pendulum- Phil Ware Trio
Ireland's leading piano trio return to the scene of their highly successful '07 Summit residency that saw a real refinement of their trio sound. Pianist Phil Ware, bassist Dave Redmond and drummer Kevin Brady are in confident form, most especially on ballads, where a newfound cohesion and maturity is much in evidence. Like the great piano trios that define this enduring jazz idiom, this is a democratic discourse between the three participating musicians, with each of the musical elements in a delicately poised balance between collective responsibility and individual expression. Stride for stride, a piano trio from Ireland worthy of the genre's illustrious history.
