Di­a­tribe On this sec­ond CD by com­poser/ key­boardist Dy­lan Ryn­hart’s Fuzzy Logic, his writ­ing, though clearly by the same hand (six pieces are his, two by en­sem­ble mem­bers Brian Wynne and Nick Roth), is an ob­vi­ous ad­vance on his fine de­but. The voic­ings are richer and more var­ied and there’s a par­tic­u­larly deft sense of pro­por­tion to the de­vel­op­ment of tex­ture and coun­ter­point. Re­plac­ing cello, French horn and clar­inet with tenor, so­prano and elec­tric bass has en­hanced the en­sem­ble, while solo op­tions are in­creased not only by Joe O’Cal­laghan (gui­tar) and the bril­liant Tom Arthurs (guest­ing on trum­pet and flugel­horn), but also by Wynne (tenor) and Cathal Roche (so­prano). And the com­plex en­sem­bles, thanks to con­duc­tor Flo­rian Ross, are among the best ex­e­cuted by an Ir­ish jazz en­sem­ble. Stand­out ex­am­ples of a uniquely con­ceived project in­clude Flip

Shuf­fle, Dusty Time and The Dif­fer­ence be­tween Light and Hard.
