History

This quartet was formed in 2007 by drummer Matthew Jacobson, who enlisted the help of improv specialists - Derek Whyte on bass, Nick Roth on alto sax and Colm O'Hara on trombone. It allowed Jacobson an outlet for his creative compositions based around the idea of using no chords and his love of anagrams. Jacobson has been described as "one of Ireland's most exciting young talents" by the Irish Times. Influences range from Deerhoof to Charles Mingus to Jim Black, and after playing to a packed Triskel Auditorium at the Cork Jazz Festival 2011, they were awarded the accolade of “Best Young Irish Band“. ReDiviDeR have played many shows and festivals in Ireland, Italy, Norway, France and The UK. To date the group have recorded and released two albums on Diatribe Records, Ireland’s leading record label for new sounds.

Never Odd Or Even

ReDiviDeR released their debut album ‘Never odd or eveN' on Diatribe Records in 2011. It received a four-star review from The Irish Times jazz critic Cormac Larkin as well as a ʻone-to-watch-out-forʼ review from All About Jazz.

Meets I Dig Monk Tuned

Then two years later ReDiviDeR returned with their second album “Meets I Dig Monk Tuned” released on October 7, 2013. The album has been described as 'an inspired endeavour' by No More Workhorse, 'melodious and unswervingly exploratory music’ by The Guardian and ‘a striking musical collage… recommended for those generally disposed to imaginative, genre-bending music’ by All About Jazz.
