RICHIEBUCK­LEYQUINTET Arthurs, Dublin, 9.30pm, €10, arthur­spub.ie Sax­o­phon­ist Richie Buck­ley’s monthly quin­tet ses­sions at Arthurs are a chance to hear one of Ire­land’s most flu­ent ex­po­nents of main­stream post-Coltrane jazz in full flight. Buck­ley’s cred­its run from Van Mor­ri­son and Bob Dy­lan to Fred­die Hub­bard and Car­los San­tana but he can be heard to best ef­fect do­ing his own thing with a group of like-minded play­ers – the top-flight group in­cludes gui­tarist John Mo­ri­arty, pi­anist Myles Dren­nan, bassist Dave Red­mond and drum­mer Kevin Brady.


Work­man’sClub,Dublin,8pm¤10 face­book.com/dublin­jaz­zcoop Dublin’s Guil­foyle/Nielsen trio broke new ground back in the 1990s with their al­bum of “f***ed up” stan­dards, be­com­ing one of the first Ir­ish jazz groups to have an im­pact in­ter­na­tion­ally and in­spir­ing a whole gen­er­a­tion of rhyth­mi­cally ad­ven­tur­ous mu­si­cians around the world. But the best way to ex­pe­ri­ence this mus­cu­lar trio is live and in re­cent months, gui­tarist Mike Nielsen, bassist Ro­nan Guil­foyle and drum­mer Conor Guil­foyle have been re­hears­ing to­gether again, blow­ing on the em­bers of their shared his­tory and rekin­dling the sound that made them one of the most in­flu­en­tial Ir­ish jazz groups of the past three decades.


Arthurs,Dublin,8.30pm¤10 arthur­spub.ie Bassist Barry Dono­hue’s fa­ther bought him a copy of Weather Re­port’s Heavy Weather al­bum when he was 13-years-old and the die was cast. The hugely in­flu­en­tial record­ing, which in­cludes fu­sion clas­sics such as Joe Zaw­inul’s Bird­land and Jaco Pas­to­rius’s Teen Town, turned the young Gal­way man into a bassist and two decades later, Dono­hue has as­sem­bled a pow­er­ful group to cel­e­brate the mu­sic of Zaw­inul, Shorter et al, with Chris En­gel on so­prano sax, Dar­ragh Wil­liam O’Ceal­laigh on key­boards, Shane O’Dono­van on drums and Ea­monn Cag­ney on per­cus­sion.
