[em] Dolan’s Up­stairs, Lim­er­ick Wed 8.30pm 117/110 061-31448; Triskel Arts Cen­tre, Cork Thurs 8pm 115/112 021-4272022 (also Dublin Fri 14th and Belfast Sat 15th) In jazz the pre-Christ­mas rush starts early and the fi­nal third of the year is usu­ally the busiest. Start­ing the ball rolling with a short Ir­ish tour is [em], the Ber­lin-based trio of pi­anist Michael Wollny, bassist Eva Kruse and drum­mer Eric Schae­fer. Theirs is a highly charged con­tem­po­rary mix in­vok­ing echoes of ev­ery­thing from hip-hop, dance floor beats and drum’n’bass to ex­per­i­men­tal rock, not for­get­ting that jazz is buried some­where in there. It’s an edgy, un­set­tling sound that clearly won’t be to ev­ery­one’s taste, but there’s no deny­ing the trio’s dark en­ergy or that it has some­thing dif­fer­ent to of­fer – and Schae­fer is a re­mark­able drum­mer. RAY COMISKEY CAN’T SEE THAT? CATCH THIS Rain­bow Rocket Drum­mer Sean Car­pio’s free im­prov band at The Cube in the Project Arts Cen­tre, East Es­sex St tonight
