INTRODUCING … THE DILWORTHS

CD REVIEW

Dilworths

A hit at Melbourne Jazz Fringe Festival, this Sydney quintet swings.

Eamon Dilworth’s trumpet can pierce and provoke, yet often entrances as it weaves wonderful harmonies with Karl Laskowski’s finely-drawn tenor sax. Alex Boneham on acoustic bass, Cameron Reid on drums and percussion, and Hugh Barrett on piano add to the drive and verve of this debut album of mostly Dilworth compositions.

Between the jaunty Lettin’ Loose and the wistful Return of the End lie many simmering solos, engrossing evolutions and sublime moments. Grim Hell is heaven. This introduction to The Dilworths calls for more.

File between: ’60s Miles Davis, Terence Blanchard.
