Each Friday at noon, Barry O’Sullivan invites a studio guest onto A Jazz Hour, this week his guest is Australian trumpeter Eamon Dilworth.
Mentored by trumpet great Bob Coassin, Dilworth studied jazz at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music under Mike Nock, Judy Bailey, Phil Slater and Dale Barlow.
Eamon Dilworth’s trumpet “sometimes carries a blast of the raucous vibrancy associated with Balkan Gypsies or Spanish bullfight bands” (Sydney Morning Herald). Eamon has established himself as a trumpeter, creative musician & manager with regular performances across Europe and Australia.
Dilworth has released three critically acclaimed albums of his own original jazz music: The Dilworths (2010 Jazzgroove Records), Tiny Hearts (2015 Alluvium Records) and Viata (2018 independent). And the there’s the Crawfish Po’Boys, celebrating the feel good coming together of the crescent city.
