JOYING is a new jazz band by guitarist Matthew Roche which is dedicated to playing original jazz that is hard swinging, energetic and positive. Tired of existential angst and staring out of dusty windows, the prolific composer Roche sought out some old musical friends Tom Flenady (double bass) and Liam O’Leary (drums) to pay homage to the jazz royalty of his childhood. After dreaming of swinging rhythm sections from the 60’s – our protagonist decided enough is enough and began writing simple tunes with a catchy melodic vernacular held together with an improvised backbone and got on the phone –the result is JOYING.
