This two-horns-no-chords quartet was established by drummer Matthew Jacobson in 2007 as a creative outlet for his compositions as well as his somewhat perverse fascination with anagrams. While he failed to find such avid fellow followers of wordplays, he did find and enlist the help of improv and rhythmic specialists Derek Whyte on bass (Dirty Jazz Band), Nick Roth on alto sax (Yurodny) and trombonist Colm O'Hara (The Troupe).

The band play all original compositions from Jacobson ("on of the most dynamic forces in Irish jazz" - Irish Times) with influences as diverse as Charles Mingus, the Books, Deerhoof and Tim Berne. The formula for putting all this together in one palindromic setting is downtown grooves with catchy riffs and collective improvs.

“Redivider can hold their heads up with the most creative new jazz bands anywhere" - Stephen Graham, Marlbank net

"an inspired endeavour" - Cormac Donnelly, No More Workhorse

"recommended for anagram/palindrome heads, nitwits and those generally disposed towards imaginative, genre-bending music." - Ian Patterson, All About Jazz
