Guitarist John Moriarty is probably best known as one third of Organics, the Hammond organ trio that blazed a trail through the Irish jazz scene in the last decade. A fluid, hard-swinging player in the style of Louis Stewart, the Dubliner is more involved than most in the sound he makes – as well as being an accomplished player, he is also a noted guitar maker.
Conor is one of Ireland’s foremost drummers and educators and has toured and recorded with some of the world’s greatest jazz musicians. Having led various Latin jazz and salsa bands over the last 20 years this is his first time leading a jazz ensemble. The members were all handpicked by Conor and represent some of the top young musicians on the scene today.
Nigel Mooney is widely regarded as one of Ireland's leading jazz singer and guitarists. A charismatic figure on the Dublin jazz and blues scenes since the early 1980's, his Gripewater Blues Band spearheaded the blues movement in Ireland and drew many fans of both jazz and the blues.
