Everything swings into action

Triskel Christchurch was the splendid setting for the first concert of the Cork Jazz Festival last Friday night. Hamilton (trumpet and flugelhorn), Johnny Taylor (piano), Dan Bodwell (double bass) and Dominic Mullan (drums) have the kind of intuitive understanding that comes from playing regularly together, with a constant interplay of ideas.

They drew their tunes from many different sources. Abbey Lincoln's Throw It Away was followed by the Rodgers and Hart standard This Can't Be Love. A spare, delicate tune called Fade a Little gave way to Paul Simon's Have a Good Time, featuring staccato trumpet and a rollicking piano solo.
