Down With Jazz, the festival that reels back the decades to the anti-jazz movement of the 1930’s, is back for a third edition; this time over the June Bank Holiday weekend.
An earlier start on Sunday as Umbra take the stage at 6:30pm with an intriguing sound that moves between the rich harmonic world of contemporary jazz and the cyclical grooves of Aphex Twin. Much praised jazz vocalist Lauren Kinsella presents Blue Eyed Hawk a new home for her exhilarating way with words, squeezing the improvisational juice out of every syllable. Another new group that have tongues wagging are the adventurous Ensemble Eriu, beautifully poised between jazz, trad and classical, with no sense of stylistic hierarchy or compromise. Toot Sweet bring their swampy bayou funk to the banks of the Liffey, with a take-no-prisoners horn section. And the musical melting pot that is Manden Express close the ‘fiesta’ for 2014 with a winning combination of good grooves born of African, Latin and Irish souls.
