IMC 25th anniversary gig / review

It was really incredible to be a part of the IMC 25th anniversary gig - an organisation that's as old as I am, which has made a lot of great music happen in Ireland over the years.

Some nice words from Ian Patterson at AllAboutJazz.com - Thanks Ian!

Comerford’s 1936 bass saxophone is a truly unwieldy beast, yet the bruising riffs and guttural howls from this tree-trunk of an instrument were tempered by surprisingly lyrical, subtle voicing. Up-tempo, the duo created fireworks; Jacobson’s constant invention—never at the expense of groove—coaxed beautifully wild flights from Comerford. On more balladic material the duo’s chemistry simmered menacingly, like a slow-burning Nirvana. Intoxicating stuff.

Umbra were also described as "arguably one of the most exciting jazz ensembles in Europe". Video of the SuperUmbra gig is on the way!
