Composer and bassist Michael Janisch is known for his distinct virtuosity and a penchant for thematic material, attention to groove and a reverence for his past musical experiences. This performance, in support of his latest album, Paradigm Shift, sees Janisch and his exceptional band propel his music into new sonic terrain conceptually, harmonically, and rhythmically.
‘Janisch seizes the instrument with a blend of speed and energy as if he wants to be melody, harmony and rhythm all at once.’ The Telegraph
