Love… and All That Jazz takes a look at love with jazz standards and songs from the musicals, classic pop songs and contemporary songs. Fiachra Trench, composer, producer and orchestral arranger (Paul Brady, Paul McCartney/Wings, Phil Lynott/Thin Lizzy, Van Morrison…) joins Flo and Carmel on grand piano for this show. Flo McSweeney has worked in the entertainment business for over 35 years. As a singer she has toured extensively with Moving Hearts and The Commitments, including performances at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland; she has worked on many projects with Bill Whelan of Riverdance fame, including the Yeats/Beckett Festival at the Abbey Theatre for five years and An Evening with W.B. Yeats at the National Concert Hall, Dublin, in September 2015; and she is a regular guest vocalist with the 17–piece Hot House Big Band. Carmel McCreagh hails from Nenagh, Co. Tipperary, but now lives in Wicklow. For 20 years she has been writing and performing with Fiachra Trench. She has appeared at festivals and venues throughout Ireland, entertaining audiences with her soulful interpretations of songs from the Great American Songbook as well as contemporary and original songs.

Often mentioned as Ireland’s greatest jazz export after Louis Stewart, Darren has played and performed with some of the greats of the jazz and music world. HIgh profile artists he is currently playing behind are Brandon Flowers of The Killers, French pop/movie composer Émilie Simon and for the last 10 years, Madelaine Peyroux. Just looking at his Website gives you an indication of some of the prodigious people and places he is associated with. Appearing with Darren is Brighton based pianist, Oli Howe. The pair meet last year when Darren returned from New York and set up home in th eSouth of England town. Their love of tradition and the classic piano trios like Oscar Peterson, Ahmad Jamal mixed with modern beats music and hip hop and R+B give them a unique understanding of swing, with a foot in the past and one in the future. Joining the duo will be well known Dublin based bass player Dave Redmond. With super tight arrangements and interplay on classic standards, this show is not to be missed. doors 9 music 9.30 entry 10e
