Naked Allies

“Last summer,” writes drummer composer bandleader Matthew Jacobson, “Irish-Australian saxophonist Daniel Rorke organised a recording session with myself, Oscar Noriega and Simon Jermyn at Figure 8 Recording in New York, playing tunes of Daniel’s and mine.

“It came out real nice and it is getting released on LA-based Orenda Records on 20 September.”


Orenda add: “Daniel Rorke has lived and worked in Ireland, Iceland, Australia, Norway, and toured throughout the world.

His performance career has included work with many well known Nordic musicians such as Hilmar Jensson, Per Oddvar Johansen, Rune Nergaard, Veli Kujala, Samúel Jon Samúelsson, Sigtryggur Baldursson, Australian piano giant Alister Spence and many others.”
