penguin2004Keith Copeland
Three Stars  “Round trip” Steeplechase Label

Keith Copeland (drums)
Tommy Halferty (guitar)
Ronan Guilfoyle (bass)

Halferty's thick tone and juicy blend of bebop lines and fat resonant chords tend to dominate this record, though Copeland and Guilfoyle are no slouches and the resultant trio has plenty of grip. Highlights would be a somewhat Latinized "You don't know what love is" and a very gritty blues called "Minor Infringement". A rare example of Steeplechase recording in Ireland!
