Limerick Jazz Festival proudly presents a Double Bill concert on Saturday 25th September in Dolan's Warehouse featuring Nacho Mena Band & Vein Trio ft. Domenic Landolf. Book early to avoid disappointment! Tickets for this event must be purchased in pods of 2 or 4.
Nacho Mena quintet formed by Pablo Contreras (bass), Andrés Pollak (piano & keyboards), Anibal Rojas (Sax), Nacho Mena (drums & percussion, Orlando Molina (guitar)
These musicians stand out for their creativity and impeccable interpretation, they are all leading bands with vast international experience, such as Anibal Rojas who resides in NYC and plays in the famous band Blood, Sweat and Tears. Pablo Contreras won the award for best bass player in the contest in NYC 2018, Andrés Pollak, leader of the famous Chilean band Marraqueta and a famous music producer. All the compositions are original and the majority by Nacho Mena. A fusion of Chile-Brazil and the US, since Nacho has lived in those three countries and has incorporated his musical roots.
Since VEIN was founded, the trio has regularly joined forces with guest musicians in horizon- expanding and ground breaking projects.
They have now come together again, forming an equally exciting and unconventional quartet with Domenic Landolf, the great saxophonist with whom VEIN is collaborating since 2018.
This is the meeting point for four musicians who go way back, knowing precisely that they make a great musical match.
Just as the trio has created an almost symbiotic interplay – by bringing together its background, its stupendous musical togetherness and its concept of maximum equality for all members – it never fails to find an incredibly inspiring addition in Domenic Landolf:
Landolf, with his distinctive and modern style that is always respectful of tradition, is one of the most important saxophonists of today’s Swiss jazz scene. He masterfully moves through the groove-heavy, lyrical, rhythmically and harmonically complex and open pieces and passages of the quartet's repertoire, which mainly consists of their own compositions.
This collaboration is based on the most mutual respect; another reason why this quartet works so well together.
