The Bitta Jazz Quartet is a relatively recent project, which arose simply as the result of participation in various jazz sessions in Cork City. The quartet consists of Ultan Lavery (piano), Cormac Hennessy (bass), Liam O’Brien (alto sax) and James Christie (drums). Each individual also contributes to the live music scene in Cork city outside of the jazz context and has worked extensively with many bands and musicians throughout the country either as recording artists or as live performers. Lavery, Hennessy and O’Brien all completed their MA in Jazz in the Cork School of Music. In fairness. Christie has no long-term formal training bar what he has been taught by local musicians and friends within the community, excelling all the while.
