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's stage 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 Mc Fadyen, The Sunday Age, Melbourne) Jigzag is often misheard as "Zigzag" but they have never played under this name. Official website: www.jigzag.com. Read more on Last.fm.
