David Lyttle


Described by Rolling Stone magazine as "one of the best, robust listening experiences you're likely to have all year" and by the Independent as "the best in jazz coming out of Ireland today", MOBO Award-nominated David Lyttle shifts seamlessly between the personas of jazz drummer, recording artist, composer/songwriter, producer and record label owner. Starting out as a child performer at the age of four with his family band, he first reached a national audience as a jazz performer in the band of legendary guitarist Louis Stewart, before going on to perform around the world and develop associations with jazz icons Joe Lovano, Jason Rebello and Jean Toussaint, and hip hop visionaries Talib Kweli and Soweto Kinch

Read "Is There Really Only One Guitar And Drums Duo Album in Jazz History?" reviewed by Ian Patterson

RBG Trio: RBG Trio

Read "RBG Trio" reviewed by Ian Patterson

From small acorns and all that. A Dublin gig in 2019 brought Ohio-raised, Derry-based saxophonist Meilana Gillard into the orbit of bassist Dave Redmond and drummer Kevin Brady. That became the springboard for an ongoing collaboration, pandemic be damned, that celebrates their mutual commitment with this fine debut album. All but two of the twelve straight-ahead ...

David Lyttle & Phil Robson: IN2

Read "IN2" reviewed by Ian Patterson

The title of drummer David Lyttle and guitarist Phil Robson's debut duo album is as direct and uncluttered as the music contained herein. Equally divided between time-honored standards and stylistically sympathetic originals--three by the Lyttle and one by Robson--the duo's straight-ahead, tradition-grounded language is perhaps a departure from their more genre-fluid work, particularly Lyttle's hip-hop filtered, ...

Murray Brothers: A Law Unto Themselves

Read "Murray Brothers: A Law Unto Themselves" reviewed by Ian Patterson

They are two of the most promising jazz musicians to have emerged from Ireland in some years. Bassist Conor Murray and twin brother Micheal Murray (alto saxophone) grew up with Irish traditional music in the small, Gaeltacht—Gaelic-speaking—town of Falcarragh, in County Donegal. Both discovered jazz in their early teens and have been regulars at the annual ...

Read "Murrays Law" reviewed by Ian Patterson

Irish twins Connor Murray (bass) and Micheal Murray (alto saxophone) live by their own law. Murrays Law. It dictates that what can happen at the last minute will happen at the last minute. Yet their trajectory, since transitioning from Irish traditional music to jazz in their early teens, seems not so much cobbled together as carefully ...
