You can’t keep a good band down, and guitarist Mike Nielsen and the brothers Guilfoyle are ready again to ply their intense, rhythmically adventurous approach to jazz and improvisation. The chemistry is undeniable, creating a collective intensity and brawn that few Irish groups before or since have matched, and developed over formative musical experiences together that go back to the early 90s. Clearly, they’re not quite ready to bow out just yet, and be ready for one of the most invigorating experiences Irish jazz has to offer.
For their part, Phisqa demonstrate just how much has changed over those two decades, with five different nationalities in their Dublin based line up. The common thread is Afro Latin rhythms, woven into a vivid tapestry of sparkling writing and energetic soloists throughout including Italian guitarist Julien Colarossi and Venezuelan pianist Leopoldo Osio.
