Dee Byrne | Outlines
TUESDAY 18 JUNE - 8:00 PM
Dee Byrne is a saxophonist, composer and improviser who pushes the boundaries of jazz and experimental music.
Dee’s latest Whirlwind release Outlines features her original compositions, with plenty of space for improvisation. The music evolved from a creative experiment: introducing visual art into her composition practice. Out of this, short musical sketches emerged that stood alone as artistic statements. These short statements are ‘Outlines’ – a springboard for this dynamic ensemble to go in new, exciting directions every time.
Byrne has achieved exactly the right balance between composition and improvisation with her intelligent, inventive and often complex themes providing the perfect launch pad for her hand-picked group. Jazz Mann
Outlines is an album of sharp edges and sudden turns, of staggered motion and harmonic twists, and yet Dee Byrne guides it all into a logical flow—a fluid output that makes its disparate parts snap into place. Best Jazz on Bandcamp July 2023
