'a rare and exceptional talent-one of the more original composers in Irish Jazz'

Irish Times

'Nelson is, without question, as the refined language of her writing and playing constantly reiterates, a singular voice,'

​All About Jazz Magazine

The theme of all things arboreal runs through the album. As Carole says on the album notes -

'Arboreal began as a walk through my local woods in South Co. Carlow. I wanted to compose music that would express the living reality of a forest – from the mycelium network beneath my feet to the sheltering canopy above, with a sense of the deep interconnection of all living things. While I was composing, information about the climate emergency was reaching more and more of us and I felt the need to respond, as a composer, to the overarching concern of our times. I learned from activists and eco-philosophers about finding the courage to feel, about emotional resilience and active hope.'

This is music to immerse oneself in - lyrical, open-hearted and grounded in a spirit that refuses to give up hope.

'one of Ireland's more original jazz composers'
