Add to Google Calendar


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.

The music is a look back to the 1950’s to a style often associated with the west coast of America known as “Cool Jazz” as well as arrangements of hardbop classics by Horace Silver, Benny Golson and Tadd Dameron.  Expect tight section playing and great soloists all underpinned with a swinging rhythm section.
