WHITE ROCKET

Sean Carpio - drums
Greg Felton - piano
Jacob Wick - trumpet

"This trio is one which, given the chance, could make its mark on the international jazz scene." - The Irish Times

In 2005 two Dubliners, pianist Greg Felton and drummer Sean Carpio met New York trumpeter Jacob at Banff Centre for Jazz & Creative Music and not for the first time, the famous Canadian artistic retreat has been the catalyst for a memorable first contact. Trumpet, piano and drums may seem an unwieldy combination, but in this music, its personality that counts, and White Rocket have it in abundance. That, and a shared love of the rhythmic systems of India’s carnatic music and everything from Nick Drake and Hindemith to Autechre and Meshuggah. These influences are not overt, but do offer compelling evidence of open musical minds at work. Comfortable and self assured with the contemporary jazz idiom, and yet liberated from it, the creative axis is in constant movement between this triad of young musicians.
