Michael Janisch’s Paradigm Shift + support from The Murray Brothers
The 2016 MOBO Award Nominee for Best Jazz Act, Michael Janisch, has established himself as a tireless creative force across the developing international spheres of contemporary improvised and experimental music. Based in London (originally from the USA), he successfully traverses this creative topography as a virtuosic electric & double bassist, composer, bandleader, producer, session musician and record label owner. His current cross-genre project as composer and bassist, Paradigm Shift –a five piece band which ambitiously combines electro-acoustic, contemporary jazz, free improvisation, future-funk, multi-metered groove, punk and electronica – has seen the release of the eponymous, far-reaching double album on Whirlwind Recordings, garnering airplay on BBC Radio 6’s Gilles Peterson Worldwide, JazzFM, NPR and WDR Radio, and continues to prompt glowing responses from the music industry and fans alike as one of the most exciting live jazz shows in Britain. Joining Janisch for his Glasgow Jazz Festival date is Steve Winwood’s tenor saxophonist Paul Booth, Emperical’s Nathaniel Facey on alto, Grammy-winner Cedric Hanriot on keys and Scotland’s own Andrew Bain on drums.
