Album Notes
San Francisco native Liam Furey began playing the clarinet at an early age 9 and soon switched to the tenor saxophone. He learned to play through the SF public school system and organized jazz ensembles. Through his 20's he played with several local SF bands including a middle-eastern belly-dance style and salsa/funk bands while attending the Jazz school in Berkeley.
Matthew Furey started working on an independent documentary called Street Poet five years ago and asked his brother to compose and arrange a soundtrack for the film. The documentary chronicles the life and artwork of San Francisco Poet Laureate Jack Hirschman. The project came at a perfect time for the tenor saxophonist. Concepts Liam had been cultivating for several years had found a medium through which they could be expressed.
The first portion of Red Poet album champion's a post-bop style giving way to a more electric and modern exploration. A sensitive and powerful collection of pieces, Red Poet features prominent Bay Area musicians such as Jacob Aginsky on piano, Jon Evans on bass, Ara Anderson on trumpet and Adam Theis of The Realistic Orchestra on trombone. The recording Red Poet is an impressive debut album and more will definitely be expected from the tenor saxophonist.

Red Poet
I really like Red Poet. Many virtuoso musicians seem to rush trough music and it looses its spirit and depth. Liam has such a broad range of expression and has performed with outstanding musicians. I’ve listened to “Ceremony” many times. I’m looking forward to his next album!


Jazz buff
Killer album, Song for David is particularly moving. Great tone on the sax. Nice job!
