“Trio Trio Piano”, a jazz piano trio series in February.

Here at Jazz on the Terrace I had an idea to put on a series of Jazz Piano Trio Concerts in Dublin. I approached Shane Masterson and Anna Gallagher of the BelloBar in Portobello, Dublin 6 to join with me in presenting the concerts.

The concept was simple but exciting, “Trio Trio Piano”, two jazz piano trios in a jazz club setting with an acoustic piano. Four excellent jazz piano trios bringing their artistry to new audiences.

This two concert series of “Trio Trio Piano” has received a very generous sponsorship from PIANOS PLUS.

There are four trios. These are the Cian Boylan Trio, the Johnny Taylor Trio, the Carole Nelson Trio and CEO, led by Leopoldo Osio.

The concerts will take place in the BelloBar, 1 Portobello Harbour on Friday 20th and Friday 27th of February.

“When Wes Was” arranged by David O’Rourke

In a previous post the piece “When Wes Was” was mentioned in a quote from a great review by Gráinne Farren in the Sunday Independent of a Dublin City Jazz Orchestra in April 2011. An audience member made this video of this very piece arranged by David O’Rourke for fellow guitarist Hugh Buckley and the orchestra.  Enjoy and find out how to book tickets to one of his four gigs in Ballina, Tallaght, Waterford or Bray below.
