Ferg Ireland Trio: Volume II

Monde Green

Regular price
The 2nd slab of 12" collecting cuts from Ferg Ireland Trio on bass, drums and sax, on a Sonny Rollins type tip.

Broken beat, new age jazz cuts for the feet and head, from Ferg Ireland Trio – Nathaniel Facey, James Maddren and Ferg Ireland laying it down raw with bass, drum, saxophone.

Birthed from informal sessions in South London around 2013, and recorded in one day, keeping recordings raw & expressive, letting the instruments do the talking. This vinyl edition features the two fiercest cuts from the album, cut nice & loud to a 12″.

“Ireland (Kansas Smittys, Soweto Kinch, Ashley Henry, 22a), Nathaniel Facey (Empirical) and James Maddren (Kit Downes, Jacob Collier, Gwilym Simcock) have been playing together for over a decade, and this is reflected in the telepathy of their musical conversation. The twists and turns of their dialogue delve deep into the dark heart of modern jazz.

The compositions (all Ireland originals) draw on the post bop tradition, with lashings of London’s dance rhythms blended with the new fusion sounds emerging south of the Thames. A soundtrack fit for the dystopian dance floors of the new decade.”
