EIRA/Snow; – bad weather ahead

Back at the Queens Head Monmouth for another Welsh Middle-Eastern Spanish Jazz Folk fusion evening (?)

“ … there’s a sense of being taken on a musical ‘world tour’ at every Eira/Snow gig … but for all this Eira/Snow’s pieces are primarily folk tunes with infectious melodies and strong grooves and an essential simplicity that ensures that they remain accessible no matter how far the band may push them.”

Inner & Outer – Dunmall/Gibbs/Owston/Bashford

Released at the end of last year on FMR, “Inner and Outer” is a recording of four of Britain’s dedicated experimentalists:

Paul Dunmall’s saxophone playing has a tonal approach which speaks authority and a truly independent voice.

Phil Gibbs, a long time collaborator with Dunmall, has a intricate guitar technique, often producing delicate sound structures and textures.

On Bass, James Owston,  keen to explore the limits of the instrument whilst oscillating between stable bass lines into various sound-scaping techniques.

Jim Bashford on drums completes the quartet with his lighting response to the creations around him. Jim is a member of no less than 20 different ensembles and tours extensively throughout the UK and Europe.
