Tudo É Som: Brazil, Jazz and the Genius of Hermeto Pascoal

The third concert of the Phil Ware Concert Series as part of a new artist residency in partnership with Triskel Christchurch and supported by Cork City Council.

Tour Dates

Thurs 28 Jan, 8pm, €15 / €12 Triskel Christchurch, Cork

An eight-strong group of musicians from Ireland, Venezuela, Germany and the UK display their love of the lilting melodies and driving beats of Brazil in a concert showcasing compositions by the incredible Hermeto Pascoal, as well as classics from Rio and beyond.

UK-born pianist Phil Ware made the transition from blues to jazz in his early twenties. Teaching himself the style through trial and error, he was twice a finalist in the Young Jazz Musician of the Year by the time he was 25. After moving to Ireland, he rapidly established himself as a major player on the scene, where his hard-swinging, bop-tinged style made him much in demand from Irish and international musicians. His career has taken him throughout Europe and as far afield as America, Asia and the Middle East, and his long-standing trio with bassist Dave Redmond and drummer Kevin Brady has twice represented Ireland at the prestigious Eurojazz Festival in Mexico City.
