F***ed Up Classics Rides Again!

Hi Everyone On Sunday 7th of June next at JJ Smyth's in Dublin, the Guilfoyle/Nielsen Trio - one of the seminal groups in Irish Jazz of the last 20 years, will be playing its first concert in five years. Furthermore the group will be playing a programme of music not heard in Dublin for over 15 years, the affectionately titled 'F***ed Up Classics' - a programme of standard pieces, all reharmonised and played in different metres. The trio were trailblazers in the area of such rhythmic techniques as odd metre playing and using metric modulation. I've written a blog about the trio and the background to the concert - you can see it here: http://ronanguil.blogspot.com/2009/05/peer-group.html Hope you can make it along! Thanks Ronan
