Ferg Ireland Trio – Volume I

Ferg Ireland Trio - Volume IAfter the last few years spent hard at work as bass player with Ruby Rushton, Ashley Henry and Kansas Smitty’s, London bass player Ferg Ireland steps into the spotlight.

‘Volume I’ is Ireland’s debut recording as a bandleader and acts as a snapshot of the melting pot of sounds now abound south of the river.

The trio featuring Ireland (double bass), Nathaniel Facey (alto saxophone) and James Maddren (drums) combine jagged, rhythmic interplay with cosmic notes and transcendental vibes, channelling the spirit of Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane and London’s broken beat scene.

The limited edition 12″ is the first release on Mondegreen a new imprint focused on exploring the road less travelled within London’s music scene.
