Plaza Real:The Music Of Weather Report
Time & Location
About the Event
"For discerning players of the electric bass, one name stands above all others and that name is Jaco Pastorius. Bassist Barry Donohue tours with Mary Coughlan and ays in guitarist Chris Guilfoyle’s superb Umbra, but when he’s left to his own devices, it’s the music of Weather Report, the band that Pastorius helped to define in the mid 1970s, that really gets his pulse racing.
Joining Donohue is a cast of the similarly inclined, including OKO keyboardist Darragh O'Kelly, Cape Town saxophonist Chris Engel, with the unstoppable grooves provided by percussionist Eamonn Cagney and drummer Shane O'Donovan.
Repertory bands have a particular appeal because you kind of know what you are going to hear, but where these talented 21st century musicians will take the fusion clasics of Joe Zawinul, Wayne Shorter, and Jaco, well, that’s the fun part."
