This concert celebrates the return of two of the great forces in American jazz music, bassist Mark Egan and drummer Adam Nussbaum, with three of Ireland’s most prominent jazz artists, Dublin pianist Cian Boylan, saxophonist Derek O’Connor and Belfast trumpeter Linley Hamilton. Having toured with Moving on Music last Spring finishing with a recorded album, we are delighted to host the launch of the quintets debut album, For the Record.

Individually these artists have worked with the likes of Van Morrison, Gregory Porter, Stan Getz, Mike Walker and Bill Evans, and are regarded as some of the very best players working today. The quintet will perform a mix of modern jazz and original music, much of which has been composed and arranged for the quintet by Linley and Cian. Expect an evening of entertaining, exciting and high-energy music.

“Adam Nussbaum is one of those journeyman percussionists whose grounded beat can be heard on over one hundred-seventy recordings” – Notes on Jazz
