"A music quite unlike anything that has preceded it on the Irish Jazz scene, hugely enjoyable for its quirky beauty and rich orchestral palette, full of colour and packed with incident. A group to savour" - The Irish Times
They take their name from a mathematical concept that deals with probability, of which there are plenty here. Tipping the scales is the gifted composer Dylan Rynhart, who leads this young ensemble with a refreshing clarity of purpose and a musical logic all his own.
He writes imaginative and open hearted music with a palpable sense of discovery, and follows the jazz maxim of understanding what's gone before in order to find what lies ahead. From the pointillism of Thelonious Monk to the rich washes of color that recall Kenny Wheeler, Rynhart's ambitious writing, with its orchestral scope, is brought to life with the flexibility and sonority of this unique instrumentation.
His players think so too, and Rynhart has drawn from the ranks of Ireland's finest emerging players to breathe life into his often gentle, but deceptively tricky music.
Self-assured soloists are in plentiful supply, including trumpeter Bill Blackmore and saxophonist Nick Roth, along with open-minded young classical players like Cellist Kate Ellis.
The best young musicians playing the best young composer's music? Seems logical.
