JAZZ IN RES­I­DENCE Lieb­man & Beirach

Na­tional Con­cert Hall, Dublin, 8.30pm, ¤15, It’s going to be a busy cou­ple of weeks for jazzers, not least for Dún Laoghaire bassist Ro­nan Guil­foyle (see also Thurs­day). Tonight, the re­spected com­poser and ed­u­ca­tor pre­mieres Al­lies, a new work writ­ten for old friends – sax­o­phon­ist Dave Lieb­man and pi­anist Richie Beirach – as part of a week­end of mu­sic and dis­cus­sion cel­e­brat­ing the 70th birth­days of these two gi­ants of the New York post-Coltrane school. Lieb­man in par­tic­u­lar is no stranger to Ir­ish au­di­ences and, as usual, he will have plenty to say, mu­si­cally and ver­bally, as he and his long-time col­lab­o­ra­tor are joined in the Na­tional Con­cert Hall’s stu­dio space by an eclec­tic en­sem­ble led by Guil­foyle, in­clud­ing the Chi­ral string quar­tet and UK trum­peter Nick Smart.

Su­gar Club, Dublin, 8.30pm, ¤25, the­sug­ar­ Ah here. While the great Lieb­man and Beirach (see above) are pre­par­ing to take the stage in the NCH, the equally great Kurt Rosen­winkel (above) will be tun­ing up around the cor­ner in the Su­gar Club. The most re­spected – cer­tainly the most im­i­tated – jazz gui­tarist of his gen­er­a­tion, Rosen­winkel is one of the ma­jor fig­ures of in­ter­na­tional jazz, a flu­ent im­pro­viser with his own melodic lan­guage, adored by au­di­ences and mu­si­cians alike. The 46-yearold Philadel­phia na­tive is in town for one night only for a new col­lab­o­ra­tion with Dublin trio the CEO Ex­per­i­ment – fea­tur­ing vir­tu­oso Venezue­lan pi­anist Leo Osio – and mer­cu­rial sax­o­phon­ist Michael Buck­ley. Bi-lo­ca­tion re­quired. Cor­mac Larkin
