Moxie, Planted, Lyte Records ****

A five-piece from Sligo and Limerick together for less than three years fusing free flowing wildly infectious traditional Irish music and lightly accented jazz-rock Moxie are Ted Kelly on tenor banjo, Jos Kelly, button accordion/keyboards, Darren Roche, button accordion, Cillian Doheny, tenor banjo/guitar, and Paddy Hazelton percussion. The foot-stomping title track best shows Moxie’s formidable potential: swinging at a moment’s notice from trad (no not the Acker Bilk variety) to hint at Béla Fleck-like jazz and world music flavours via the wooze and swirl of a dubby electronic wash to open out to travel far from the strictures of a much more hidebound approach.
