Dennis Wyers’ Rhombus Quartet

CONTEMPORARY JAZZ Thursday 20th August @ 8.00pm

Dennis Wyers
Rhombus jazz quartet features some of the finest established and emerging jazz musicians on the Irish scene. Led by Castlebar-born composer/saxophonist Dennis Wyers, the group is quickly developing a name for itself as a hotbed for spontaneous, exciting music. The ensemble draws on influences from Norwegian and British jazz, contemporary classical, the blues and South-Indian music, moving between many different styles and textures to create colouristic compositions and intensely rhythmical jazz explorations, with influences from Charlie Parker to Frank Zappa and from the Beatles to Pat Metheny. The debut album, part-funded by the Mayo County Council Arts Office, is currently in production. The full quartet lineup is: Dennis Wyers (alto saxophone); Bill Blackmore (trumpet); Cormac O Brien (double-bass); and Shane O Donovan (drums). Catch them now!
