Mick Coady’s Synergy featuring US saxophonist David Binney comes to The Dock on Thursday November 1st.

Playing their only live date in the west of Ireland in The Dock on Thursday November 1st, Mick Coady’s Synergy brings together five truly great young jazz musicians from the UK, Ireland and the US and features renowned composer and alto saxophonist David Binney. The concert is part of a UK/Ireland tour for the release of Nine Tales Of The Pendulum, Coady’s debut album, out now on independent record label Jellymould Jazz.

Although tightly rooted in the jazz tradition Mick Coady’s original work reveals another side of his musical character, one that draws its inspiration from a wide diversity of influences including rock and folk, and more recently African and Brazilian traditional music forms.

American saxophonist David Binney is acclaimed as a considerable and highly individual compositional talent, and is one of the most prolific young jazz musicians on the scene today. The other members of the group are Ivo Neame on piano, Josh Arcoleo on Tenor Saxophone and James Maddren on drums.

The ensemble will play music from Mick Coady’s debut album Nine Tales of the Pendulum. It promises to be another exceptional evening of Jazz at The Dock from 8.30pm. Tickets are available from the box office on 071 96 50828 or on-line at www.thedock.ie
