A big week for jazz fans

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - Listings - RAY COMISKEY


For those who like jazz with a sense of ad­ven­ture, next week will be a bit spe­cial. Vet­eran Dutch drum­mer Han Ben­nink (above), whose ex­pe­ri­ence em­braces Rollins and Dex­ter Gor­don in the 1960s, is a key fig­ure in Euro­pean free jazz. One of the founders of In­stant Com­poser Pool (ICP), Am­s­ter­dam’s free jazz nexus, he was joined there in the 1980s by Amer­i­can clar­inet­tist Michael Moore; both were also part of the Clu­sone trio with cel­list Ernst Rei­jseger. Joined by New York ac­cor­dion­ist Will Holshauser, they open a short Ir­ish tour to­mor­row in Belfast (Black Box, £10), on to Dublin on Sun­day (JJ Smyth’s, ¤18) and fin­ish­ing in Cork on Mon­day (Triskel Arts Cen­tre, ¤30/¤18/¤16).
