Mouthpiece album review - Cormac Larkin The Sunday Tribune 25 Oct 2009 Dylan Rynhart/Fuzzy Logic Ensemble Mouthpiece

Composer and keyboardist Dylan Rynhart has been leading his nine-piece ensemble for the last seven years and it just keeps getting better. Mouthpiece is their second recording and marks a considerable advance on their first, New Hat. The leader's writing has become more assertive, with stronger melodies and more space for the soloists, and he has drawn into the ensemble several players, including guitarist Joe O'Callaghan and saxophonist Brian Wynne. Produced by German conductor Florian Ross and featuring top UK trumpeter Tom Arthurs, Fuzzy Logic now rate among the most daring and original musical ensembles working in Ireland today.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place 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 effort that will help musicians 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 bottom right video ad). Thank you.
