Interview with Nick Mulvey of Portico Quartet
On last Saturday’s Jazzorama I spoke to Nick Mulvey of Portico Quartet, before they embark on a nationwide Irish Tour. Nick talked about their new album Isla, described by MOJO magazine as a brew of “… Steve Reich mathematics, Radiohead dread, African desert grooves and ECM northern melancholy …a chiming cavernous sound-world that is both exotic and hypnotic”.
