There should be no withdrawal pangs for jazz fans after this weekend’s traditional blowout in Cork with a full dancecard of shows scheduled for the coming weeks.

Made On Mondays is a series of Irish talent showcases at Dublin jazz haunt JJ Smyths during November.

It kicks off on November 5 with a meeting of the minds between the Ariel Hernandez Trio and Savage Monkey.

Other highlights include electronic composer Zoid with trad fiddler Caoimhin O’Raghallaigh (Monday 12), Awkward Silence’s Aphex Twin-inspired musings (Monday 19) and Italian pianist Francesco Turrisi’s first foray into the world of the trio (Monday 26)

Meanwhile, one of Europe’s most promising jazz players, Norwegian trumpeter Arve Henriksen, plays Cork’s Triskel on October 31 and Dublin’s Sugar Club on November 1.

Cuban pianist Roberto Fonseca brings his band to that same Dublin venue on November 14.
