27/01/2008 Cormac Larkin -Sunday Tribune

One of the most dynamic forces in Irish jazz over the last few years"

Dublin based drummer Kevin Brady has been one of the most dynamic forces in Irish jazz over the last few years, as the founder of the Living Room Project Music Collective and the rhythmic force behind two of the country's leading trios - Organics and the Phil Ware Trio. Recently he has begun to lead his own groups, and particularly to collaborate with front rank U.S. pianist Bill Carrothers. The result is this assured debut, with a set that ranges from standards to Wayne Shorter's Waterbabies,showcasing both Brady's deep connection with bassist Dave Redmond and the quirky brilliance of one of America's finest pianists.

"Carrothers lyrical approach on piano fits musical bill"

Bill Carrothers, an American pianist based in Michigan,has made a number of visits to this country(Ireland),and it was good to hear him again last Wednesday night in the Mermaid Arts Centre,Bray with Kevin Brady (Drums) and Dave Redmond (Double-Bass).The group touring Ireland has reached the stage of integration and togetherness that comes with regular collaboration. Beginning with Church of the Open Air, a Carrothers original with hymn like harmonies, the group played a richly varied programmes that took in 12 -bar blues,percussive be-bop,romantic songs such as Cole Porter's So In Love, and the jocular Waltz Macabre. The pianist's lyrical approach brought out the utmost best in slow,moody numbers,and his own compositions showed a quirky individuality that clearly appealed to the two Irish musicians.Redmond's bass work was nimble and tasty, while Brady proved himself a Master of light and shade on the drums.Common Ground(LRP) A new CD by Kevin Brady Trio plus John Moriarty (guitar) Highlights include Charlie Parker's Red Cross, Wayne Shorter's Water Babies, Brady's Godbye Mr Munch and Dave Redmond's - Origin.. Put it on your list of presents to yourself....

01/12/0007 The Irish Times - Ray Comiskey

KEVIN BRADY & BILL CARROTHERS Common Ground Living Room

Carrothers is such a major talent, it's not surprising the pianist had such a galvanising impact on drummer Kevin Brady's trio (with Dave Redmond on bass and John Moriarty on guitar) when they toured earlier this year. It's evident in the resultant studio recording; in the wryly imaginative recasting of By Myself; in the inventive quartet treatments of Bemsha Swing and Little Niles, especially the way the waltz's bridge section is used; in the gorgeous piano intro to the ballad, Goodbye Mr Munch, with possibly the best guitar solo of the album; and in the stunning piano solo on Red Cross's venerable rhythm changes. Above all there are two rather special trio performances: Wayne Shorter's other-worldly Waterbabies and a sublime Yesterdays. Carrothers doesn't do coasting and, to their credit, neither do this trio. www.livingroomproject.com RAY COMISKEY
