Tommy Halferty Trio

The evergreen Halferty is from Derry, that most musical of Irish cities and since the late 70s, he's been an irrepressible voice, always lyrical and animated, and a formative influence for many Irish jazz musicians. Among them are bassist Ronan Guilfoyle and drummer Conor Guilfoyle, who join the spirited improviser here for a typically eclectic programme of standards, contemporary originals, and freshly minted arrangements of Irish traditional melodies. They're the ideal foil for Halferty's agile, Brazilian inflected guitar style, who appears here in familiar trio territory immediately following a duo performance with Norma Winstone at Bray Jazz Festival.
