The Ryan Driver Quintet - You Go to My Head

This holiday season outing saw a couple subs sitting in with Ryan Driver's ballad-heavy heavy-hitters' group, including Karen Ng on alto sax and clarinet as well as Thom Gill adding some subtle synth textures that more filled in for Michael Davidson's vibraphone than Martin Arnold's guitar. It was all rather dreamy and beautiful as the group stretched out with some standards over a couple sets, ranging from subtly-surging Latin rhythms to woozy clockwork to dreamtime wind-downs.

[Aurochs will be back in the Southern Cross on Friday, February 22nd.]
