The city’s jazz lovers are in for a real treat as the hotly anticipated 12 Points Festival gets underway this week, featuring 4 nights of next-generation jazz including 12 exciting emerging jazz acts from across Europe, with daytime ‘Jazz Futures’ industry conference and after-hours jam sessions. Catch a sneak preview of all 12 artists performing at this year’s festival here.
Dublin-based Improvised Music Company (IMC), round off the festival on a high with performances by Ktjetil Mulelid Trio (Oslo), The Rite of Trio (Porto) and Dominic J Marshall Trio (Amsterdam).
Ktjetil Mulelid Trio is a classic acoustic piano trio with beguiling compositions, expertly balancing energetic and harmonically rich music with beautiful evocative melodies synonymous with Scandinavia.
Infinitely chaotic and complex, yet full of love and humour The Rite of Trio is one loud, fuzzy and skronky guitar trio from city of Porto.
Fusing hard-hitting melodic jazz with slugged out hip hop grooves and daring dynamics, Dominic J Marshall Trio features strong echoes of both Glasper and Kamasi, with a distinctly European twist.
