THIS self-titled debut album by a youthful quintet of students and ex-students from the Sydney Conservatorium is led by trumpeter Eamon Dilworth, who composed all but one of the seven tracks.

Although all members are in their 20s, they’ve had extensive local and overseas playing experience. Joining Dilworth in the front line is saxophonist Karl Laskowski, an amazing player who performed in New York’s Carnegie Hall at the age of 17.

The compositions are varied in style and reveal an exceptional level of ability, from the atonal car horn opening and eastern modality of Lettin’ Loose, to the soul-infused, relaxed Latino feel of Satura. Hugh Barrett’s piano is unobtrusively important in ensemble passages and contributes thoughtful, moving solos expertly crafted, as in Grim Hell, where he introduces Alex Boneham’s sturdily melodic acoustic bass, followed by a rapid-fire drum solo from Cameron Reid.

Laskowski by Nature is a swinging post-bop piece featuring Dilworth’s trumpet flaring brightly before the tenor sax’s galvanising lift-off in rocket trajectory. A subdued, but insistent piano riff steps through Lili Song, with the trumpet gradually developing the soothing theme, ahead of an offbeat transformation into a funky finale. The talent-packed Dilworths are a band to watch out for; their appealing compositions and articulate performances cannot be ignored.

Steve Barry hails from New Zealand and since moving to Sydney in March 2009 to study at the Sydney Conservatorium he has played with Dale Barlow, James Muller, Roger Manins and George Coleman Junior. He’s also played Thredbo and Manly Jazz Festivals, and toured New Caledonia with Dale Barlow, Brendan Clarke and George Coleman Jnr (USA).

I’ve been fortunate to be able to play with Steve almost every week, and at one point we were playing everyday for about 3 months. We’ve both really been into playing bebop heads in unfamiliar keys and odd time signatures for fun. He’s always inspired me to work harder, and until I met Carl Morgan I hadnt met someone so disciplined in developing such a high level of craft. He’s one of my best mates and I think he’s absolutely worth checking out live.

He leads a great trio with Dilworthers Alex Boneham and Cameron Reid.

Oscar Peterson
Keith Jarrett
Herbie Hancock
Brad Mehldau
Bill Evans

I got into playing through Oscar Peterson, one of the first albums I ever bought was the Sound of the Trio with Ray and Ed. As far as feel and chops go in that style no one beats Oscar. Keith was my second big influence, I go back to him all the time and still can’t get over his seemingly inexhaustible depth of ideas. Herbie took things to another level melodically, especially those 60′s albums and with Miles. Brad’s different again. Bill Evans I could never really get into until recently and I’m just realising just what a harmonic genius he was. The main thing for me is feel, and these 5 guys sure as hell have it!

These young guys are Jazzgroove Records latest release and perhaps the next big thing. The Dilworths find the perfect balance of modern day Jazz influences, lending from American and European traditions while embracing the raw earthiness of their Australian roots. The band has undeniable experience beyond their years, having performed individually everywhere from Carnegie Hall to the Sydney Opera House.
