Open Land – Meeting John Abercrombie | ECM Cinema

Ireland, Cork - The Triskel Arts Centre
Open Land – Meeting John Abercrombie | ECM Cinema

Amazingly authentic, the film Open Land offers an unforgettably intimate portrait of its protagonist, jazz legend John Abercrombie who died in August 2017. This wonderful encounter is as poetic and atmospherically dense as Abercrombie’s music. A labour of love and deep admiration Open Land is a subtle and very personal portrait that gives an insight into the life and work of this outstanding artist. To glimpse genius on such an intimate level is nothing short of revelatory.

Sounds and Silence: Travels with Manfred Eicher | ECM Cinema

In this unprecedented DVD release, documentarians Peter Guyer and Norbert Wiedmer set out to capture ECM Records as a living entity in which human labour and ingenuity are the dual heart of musical life.

ZASKA

Ireland - The Oliver Plunkett
ZASKA

Max Zaska is the guitar-wielding songwriter at the helm of this supergroup of talent with a rotating roster of session players and rising stars from across genres in the Irish music scene, starting with Hozier, the band’s original vocalist.

Blending his blues-rock roots with a love of a deeply funky groove and jazz improvisation, Zaska’s compositions don’t fit neatly into a single genre. Think: Steely Dan meets Vulfpeck and Snarky Puppy.

Tudo Bem – The Music of Brazil – Jazz at the Green Room

Blessed with a long tradition of great composers and songwriters, and a vast range of regional styles, the music has been hugely influential, moving far beyond its own borders to find a place in so many other musical traditions, including jazz and popular music.
