The Carole Nelson Trio are halfway through their One Day in Winter Tour. February 15th sees them return to Arthur's Bar in Dublin, where their debut CD was launched as part of 2017's Trio Trio Trio Festival. With Carole Nelson on piano, Cormac O'Brien on bass and Dominic Mullan on drums, the evening will also include some special guests - Peadar Tumelty on soprano saxophone and Maria Walsh on vocals

"One Day In Winter is the sort of recording that keeps one on the edge of their seat throughout. The trio brings a deep empathy with European Jazz-making on one hand; the sparseness and melodicism, while keeping the tradition of Jazz music at the fore and even making space for Irish traditional elements in the inaugural piece Beata Viscera. But this is no fusion record. The trio have a singular vision, and the many influences are naturally expressed in the whole. This is a piano trio that finds a way to swing gently but stridently through a plethora of feels. No contrivances here, this is real. This is a record that doesn’t shy away from its art, and yet the high level musicianship should be no barrier to the casual listener. Never does it feel anyone has anything to prove. This is simply solid and uncompromising playing from three highly enjoyable players. The compositions are always interesting, yet avoid overt complexity – no small feat indeed for Nelson as composer. This is a recording that doesn’t get predictable at any point, with each track providing a window into different, and continually surprising, aspects of the group." Daniel O'Rourke in Jazz Ireland
