Ronan Guilfoyle is a major figure on the Irish jazz scene and has developed an international reputation as a performer, teacher and composer. Ronan is now one of the acoustic bass guitar's leading exponents. He has been composing for classical ensembles since 1993 with a large body of work that ranges from solo piano pieces, to chamber works, to orchestral compositions. Over the past 10 years Ronan has become very well known for the teaching of advanced rhythmic techniques for jazz improvisation and his book, "Creative Rhythmic Concepts for Jazz Improvisation" is now seen as the standard text for this area. Ronan is the founder of and head of the jazz department at Newpark Music Centre in Dublin, the only school offering post-secondary jazz education in Ireland.
Outward Bound Trio is a free jazz trio based in Crete, working together since 2005. Their two albums -“Outward Bound”, (Triple Bath 2009) and “The Path”, (Slam productions 2011)- made a great impression on the critics and the audience because of their aesthetic pursuits.
The four musicians started working together since the summer of 2018, while their friendship is much older. They perform original compositions as well as a wider jazz repertoire under their own approach, so only a good judge of contemporary music can recognise the tunes. Experimentation goes to extremes...
