BigSpoon's Chris Engel: Intention... And Spontaneity

Read "BigSpoon's Chris Engel: Intention...  And Spontaneity" reviewed by Ian Patterson


So much goes into a debut album--a lifetime of learning, experiences and myriad influences. The music that springs forth is also often shaped in subtle and unfathomable ways that are sometimes not entirely clear even to the composer. Some musical reference points may appear obvious, others much less so, and so it is with ...

BigSpoon: The Return Of The Prodigal Son

Read "The Return Of The Prodigal Son" reviewed by Ian Patterson


South African saxophonist Chris Engel has been a ubiquitous figure on the Irish jazz/improvised scene since arriving in Dublin in 2011. Whether in Chris Guilfoyle's modernist Umbra, Cote Calmet's Afro-Peruvian-inspired Phisqa, Italian guitarist Julien Colarossi's quartet or the Weather Report tribute band, Plaza Real, Engel's commitment is total, his fierce technique matched by a fearless improvisatory ...

The plot thickens with a perusal of the personnel, which reveals, that alongside Nick Roth on alto and soprano saxophones and Luis Tabuenca on percussion, the leader handles ...

Matthew Jacobson: Rituals Of Sound And Time

Read "Matthew Jacobson: Rituals Of Sound And Time" reviewed by Ian Patterson


For someone whose livelihood and lifeblood are all about rhythms, the COVID-19 lockdown, with its very different rhythms, must be extremely frustrating. Especially when, as is the case with Matthew Jacobson, renowned drummer, composer, promotor and record label manager, there is no drum kit in his Dublin apartment. “I've been doing more work on ...

Lina Andonovska: A Way A Lone A Last

Read "A Way A Lone A Last" reviewed by Ian Patterson


Solo flute albums rarely clog up the world's second-hand vinyl bins. More's the pity, for the flute's sounds are timeless. In prehistoric times people played flutes made from bones and mammoth ivory--making the connection between the air inhaled and exhaled to produce music. Or sounds, for there is, and always has been, a fine line between ...

ReDiviDeR: Mere Nation

Read "Mere Nation" reviewed by Ian Patterson


It may be disappointing to enigmatologists that there are no palindromes or obvious anagrams from ReDiviDeR on its third Diatribe Records release, following Never Odd Or Even (2011) and I Dig Monk, Tuned (2013). Musicophiles, however, should be delighted, for like its predecessors, Mere Nation is a colorful box of delights. Rambunctious, brooding and tender in ...
