The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - THE TICKET SEVEN DAYS - CL AD

JAZZ Nigel Mooney Or­gan Trio w/ Jim Mullen & Hugh Buck­ley Nigel Mooney’s (right) 2014 re­lease, The Bo­hemian Mooney, was voted jazz al­bum of the year by Ticket read­ers. Now, to celebrate the mem­ory of Grant Green – the great Blue Note gui­tarist who inspired a gen­er­a­tion of funk and hip-hop artists – the pop­u­lar singer and gui­tarist has put to­gether a pow­er­ful three gui­tars plus Ham­mond or­gan and drums show. There’s a spe­cial ap­pear­ance from flu­ent Glas­gow gui­tarist Jim Mullen, who rose to fame in the 1970s with the Av­er­age White Band. Tour con­tin­ues next week to Dublin and Belfast. ART Use­less

Kant ar­gued that art is pur­po­sive with­out hav­ing a pur­pose. Caro­line McCarthy is re­claim­ing that stance, ques­tion­ing the “in­creas­ing de­mand on art to jus­tify it­self in terms of eco­nomic or so­cial out­comes”. She be­gins with func­tional ob­jects and ma­te­ri­als, and trans­forms them into some­thing else, shed­ding their util­i­tar­ian di­men­sion but gain­ing another.
