Kenny Barron / Dave Holland Duo - Kenny Barron / Dave Holland Duo, Brecon Jazz Festival, 07/08/2015. | Review | The Jazz Mann
In the superb acoustic environment of Brecon’s Theatr Brycheiniog Barron
and Holland produced a veritable masterclass in the art of duo playing,
their rapport relaxed, intelligent, intimate and conversational with no
one musician dominating and with the spirit of true musical dialogue at
the heart of the performances.
Music was my refuge.
Nielsen: Wind Quintet
Checking in at the construction site: Crane is gone, digger is here and we have signs!

Making our hearts happy
Morning soundtrack to counteract: delayed trains, cat hairballs,
mosquito bites, and anything else that the day has thrown at you
already…not that we know anything about any of those things….
Jason Moran and Robert Glasper
Encore after encore after encore - despite our best efforts, the YS tour in Ireland had to come to an end. Our last concert in the National Concert Hall was a truly incredible experience. Thanks to Emily Tuan for making this trip possible, our chaperones for keeping this trip fun (and safe), and of course, Mr. K for his enthusiasm and passion. Goodbye and thank you, Ireland!
Some pictures from Dublin - the “most photographed” door in the city, Trinity College (where we caught a glimpse of the fascinating, ancient Book of Kells), a beautiful mural we happened upon by chance, and the Merry Ploughboy pub, where YS’ farewell luncheon was accompanied by traditional Irish tunes, and followed by a spot of Irish step dancing!
Ending our stay in Derry with a lovely concert in the gorgeous Guild Hall, shared with the incredible local chorus Codetta! Off to Dublin in a bit. The end of the YS tour draws nearer, much to our chagrin…
