Ronan Guilfoyle’s 50/50

50 years young this week, and more than half of them spent at the apex of Irish jazz, Ronan Guilfoyle is celebrating this milestone in the best of musical company with a double bill of two of his favourite bands.

Tudo Bem reflects Guilfoyle's lifelong interest in Brazilian music, and the band, with pianist Phil Ware, drummer Sean Carpio and singer Aoife Doyle, convene here to play the music of Hermeto Pascoal, Tom Jobim, Antonio Adolfo and Caetano Veloso and the grooves of Samba, Partido Alto, Bossa Nova, Biaions and more.

The other constant has been the jazz standard, and helping Ireland's leading bassist ring the changes are saxophonist Michael Buckley, guitarist and lifelong companion in jazz Tommy Halferty and drumming brother Conor.
