PALAVER means to talk profusely and idly. As in all forms of discussion, meaning is left up to the listener. Discuss: Cajole: Persuade: Confuse: Palaver improvise a totally in the moment music, with fearless intent.

The members of Palarver are the renowned Miroslav Bukovsky on trumpet, Geoff Hughes on guitar and Ronny Ferella on drums.

Even though each member of Palaver is a bandleader, composer and seasoned performer in their own right, no-one leads this ensemble, as no idea or philosophy is behind the music other than to listen and play. All connected by the world of jazz, but each with a unique take on that music, the musical and artistic influences of this collective reaches far and wide. Over the last fifteen years, the members of Palaver have been performing alongside each other in a multitude of different ensembles and musical environments. A Palaver performance filters all those experiences into one music.

“Theirs is a kind of exploratory jazz surgery: they take a scalpel and nary a motif or two on a cosmic journey into the very essence of music and feeling; it's primal, visceral, with a physicality & dimensionality rarely encountered in such a 'spiritual' realm.”
