New Light by Organics

Organics is a trio of young Irish jazzmen. New Light is an album to listen on all occasions, not because of banality but because the trio makes each one of these tracks a unique experience.

Guitarist John Moriarty is a talented jazzman who has been awarded many different scholarships. John is a leader with high musical skills. Drummer Kevin Brady has performed with Louis Stewart, Richie Buckley, Ronan Guilfoyle, Hugh Buckley, Noel Kelehan and Dave Fleming. He also teaches drumkit performance at the Newpark School of Music. Justin Carroll exclusively plays this particular instrument in jazz: the Hammond organ. He has studied with some of the best jazz musicians including Kenny Werner, Dave Holland, Joe Lovano, Dave Douglas, Joey Baron, Mark Feldman, Tony Malaby, Joe LaBarbara, Don Thompson and Kenny Wheeler.

Throughout the nine tracks, Organics transports the listener on a travel of complex musical genres in which one can feel the extraordinary energy and emotions that bound to the Trio. Organics is the first Irish jazz group to be featured in Music Network’s "Young Music Program for Classic Music."

The Hammond is groovy, happy, gospel and well mastered. Drummer Brady is also a trumpeter and since every member of the band basically follows his own path, they come together in Organics combining all of their distinct discoveries. "Angela's Kitchen" is terrifically funky. Organics' music is deep into gospel, emotionally constructed and totally orchestrated.

The Irish people are warm, share life drinking stout, are driven by powerful root emotions, are romantics, sing like birds, and delight the world with poetry. They also have great.... .jazzmen! Good stuff.
