Dee Byrne’s quintet has been steadily developing its own dynamic band sound since its beginnings in 2010. Placing a high importance on improvisation, Dee’s compositions allow breathing space for depth of communication and hyper interaction between the band members. Juggling order and chaos, composition and improvisation, the group takes listeners on a journey with compelling group interplay, strong themes, open-ended improvisation, dark grooves and interweaving melodic textures.
‘Intense, muscular jazz voyage.’ ★★★★ The Guardian

‘A boiling mix of ideas… Byrne’s compositions contain a unique blend of tension, drama, exploration and resolution.’ ★★★★ Jazz Journal
‘The word is starting to get out. Entropi are now ready for bigger stages.’
