Dublin Streets, Butterfly Beats

One of the nine compositions performed last night by the Dublin City Jazz Orchestra as part of the world premiere of 9 new Irish compositions for Big Band was composed by Abigail Smith, my sister and Allen’s daughter. As I know her (!) I had no qualms asking her if I could record and broadcast her composition online using Audioboo on my iPhone. It’s quick and dirty but gives a real sense of the energy that was in the room last night.

Don’t forget that you can hear the Dublin City Jazz Orchestra play these nine compositions and many other kicking jazz tunes on Saturday 6th November in the Mermaid Arts Centre, Bray as part of the Improvised Music Regional Touring Scheme and on Wednesday 15th November for the Limerick Jazz Society in Dolans Warehouse, another concert in the Music Network series.
