Michael Janisch's Paradigm Shift Concept this Friday at the Lit and Phil, Newcastle

As a taster for those who are as yet undecided about attending Jazz North East's concert at the Lit and Phil by Michael Janisch's Paradigm Concept they could do worse than read the band's trumpet player Jason Palmer's comments on the tour so far which culminates at the L and P on Friday. Jason's enthusiasm for the project is infectious and I have the feeling that Friday will be an end of term no holds barred gig!
Read about it on LondonJazz.
Complete line-up is; Jason Palmer (trumpet/flugel), Paul Booth (tenor), Esperanza Spalding's pianist Leo Genovese (piano, keys), and Colin Stranahan (drums).

  1. I don't think describing Leo Genovese as someone's pianist really does him justice. (and it's Spalding not Salding)

  2. I have corrected the spelling which I lifted directly from the original article by Jason Palmer on LondonJazz as I did with the description of Leo Genevese.
    I don't think there is anything wrong in Jason passing a comment on Leo's involvment with the Spalding Band. It's just like referring to Johnny Hodges as a member of the Ellington Band.

  3. They were very good when they played Glasgow last week (with David Lyttle on drums). In particular, Jason Palmer is an excellent trumpeter. Review here: http://www.heraldscotland.com/arts-ents/music-reviews/michael-janisch-s-paradigm-shift-the-griffin-glasgow-1.1098902

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
