One of the country’s most reliably consistent and forward-thinking jazz festivals, the line-up has been revealed for the fifth outing of Moving on Music’s Brilliant Corners. On March 11, the final day of the festival, the Black Box hosts a daytime show from Ireland jazz band Organ Failure, featuring master saxophonist Jean Toussaint.
Nigel Mooney is widely regarded as one of Ireland’s leading jazz singers and guitarists. A charismatic figure on the Dublin jazz and blues scenes since the early 1980’s, his Gripewater Blues Band spearheaded the blues movement in Ireland and drew many fans of both jazz and the blues. A self-taught musician, Mooney was influenced by the blues from an early age and his hard-bop style of guitar playing is expressive and melodic with a bluesy groove.
Organ Failure features Scott Flanigan on organ and Dominic Mullan on drums and for this concert they will be joined by one of the world’s greatest saxophonists, Jean Toussaint.
