Chris Guilfoyle - Guitar Leopoldo Osio - Piano Barry Donohue - Bass Brendan Doherty - Drums
'Hivemind' is the newest project from guitarist Chris Guilfoyle. This project focuses on modern swing drawing influence from a range of artists such as Wynton Marsalis's Black Codes band as well as Kurt Rosenwinkel, Mark Turner and Brad Mehldau.
The ensemble is comprised of some of the leading lights of Dublin's jazz scene with long-standing collaborator Barry Donohue on bass, Leopoldo Osio on Piano and Brendan Doherty on drums. The project steers away from the large-scale compositions that typify the style of his band Umbra and puts more of a spotlight on improvisation but still maintaining a drive and energy that has come synonymous with Chris's music.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
