Product Notes

JIGZAG have been touring the folk/roots festivals for 10 years now with their live show which has seen them captivate intimate rooms in people's houses to standing ovations during full-blown concerts at festivals in UK,Denmark,Canada,NZ and Australia.Greg Bryce (acoustic guitar,vocals)Liz Frencham (semi-acoustic double-bass,vocals) and Caroline Trengove (violin,viola,vocals) are basking in an onstage maturity and comfort that connects easily and open-heartedly with their audience without losing any of their fiery intensity.Their new album Jigzag Live which was recorded both in front of intimate studio audiences and large festival concerts shows off a new area of risk-taking and spontaneity in their instrumentals along with their spine-tingling,trade-mark, 3 part harmony songs. Here's a few snapshot descriptions from independant CD and 'live'festival reviewers: 'Jigzag were a revelation!This three-piece high energy band from Sydney combine Celtic snap,heartfelt ballads and punchy folk with energetic, joyful stage presentation. See them if you ever can. Buy their CD. It's on the web.' Steve Baker Tablelands Folk Festival Yungaburra,Qld 'As a unit Jigzag are as tight as a jigsaw, though there's always space for spontaneity. It's a perfect blend of instrumental skills and voices. Greg Bryce (guitar), Elisabeth Frencham (upright bass) and Caroline Trengove (violin/viola) fit together like interlocking pieces. They read each other's moves like reef fish. All innovative players and singers, lead and harmony, they also have a flair for writing catchy yet thought-provoking songs. Their folky pop contains bright splashes of jazz, blues, classical and Celtic.' 'Live performance is Jigzag's lifeblood so it's nigh tantamount to stating the bleeding obvious to say that the new album shows off their best qualities. Recorded before a studio audience in Melbourne and at festivals in Victoria and Queensland, Live! Stands as eloquent testimony to the Sydney trio'sstage artistry.' 'Sheer vivacity, musicality and inherent ability to entertain' (Tony Hillier-Rhythms Magazine) 'The coalescence of voices sends shivers down the spine, and there's no greater tribute to musicians than that they can make ring, like a spoon on a glass, a resonant chord within.' 'The trio, of guitar, violin and double bass, blend acoustic folk, pop, Celtic, jazz and even country swing; these streams flow into a river that glistens on the surface with sunlight, yet has a musical and emotional depth to it.' (Warwick McFadyen,The Sunday Age,Melbourne)
