Jazz Mine No. 41 Saturday 6th. February 2016 from 5 to 6PM on 103.2 Dublin City FM or dublincityfm.ie

In association with The Improvised Music Company

World renowned saxophonist Seamus Blake will perform with The Tommy Halferty Trio at the home of Jazz & Blues in Dublin on Saturday the 13th of Feb. 2016.

New York based tenor saxophonist/composer Seamus Blake is recognized as one of the finest exponents of contemporary jazz. His music is known for its sophistication, bold improvisations and “sheer swagger". John Scofield, who hired Seamus for his Quiet Band, called him “extraordinary, a total saxophonist.”

Seamus Blake’s recent releases, Live at Smalls, Bellwether and Live in Italy, have garnered considerable critical praise for his masterful playing, his fine compositional skills and for his facility as a leader. Described as “a knockout”, “one of the elite albums of the year” and “as exhilarating as a shot of espresso”, it is on many Top of the Year lists.

1. Dublin Nights ( 6.38 ) - David Liebman - CD After Dark davidliebman.com IMC Records
1998 IRISH RELEASE
Spend the day with Dave Liebman as he gives a lunchtime talk and leads three masterclasses with aspiring jazz professionals at the National Concert Hall before moving to Wheelan's for a one-off performance.
€25 Day Ticket to include Talk, Masterclass and Concert see improvisedmusic.ie
Soprano saxophonist David Liebman, whose distinguished career includes extended periods with Miles Davis and Elvin Jones in addition to his own important groups like Quest and Lookout Farm, has taken the most active interest in Ireland, and four years since his last memorable visit, he’s back in the performer, mentor and educator capacities in which he excels.
With his darkly intense tone, sinuous lines and masterful control of volatile chromaticism, Liebman has a unique musical vocabulary that is emotive, powerful and direct. He’s also one of the most generous spirits and forthright thinkers in jazz today, an inspirational teacher and a seminal link to the artists, like Miles, who still cast a long shadow in creative music.

Dale Griffin former drummer & founder member MTH born 24/10/1948 - died 19/1/2016 RIP
All The Young Dudes, on which Bowie sang backing vocals, revived the band’s fortunes and was hailed by the NME as “one of that rare breed: rock songs which hymn the solidarity of the disaffected without distress or sentimentality”. The lyrics – “Lucy looks sweet ’cause he dresses like a queen” – also led it to becoming something of a gay anthem in America.
