Paradigm Jaunt


Originally conceived some years ago by sax player and founder member, Annil Chandra, Paradigm Jaunt has evolved over the years with line ups made up from budding musicians attending jam sessions run by Andy Hamilton and the Blue Notes in Bearwood and the Drum Aston (all of the Blue Notes always had and have passed on the love and passion for playing and performing and encouraging young and old to travel the musical journey with an open heart and sharing with others that you may encounter).

Their latest line up is a mix of generations and backgrounds , all with a passion and love of playing, on a journey to learn as we listen to those musicians from whatever genre it may be.

Their set is made up of some of those influences and rhythms, as they aim to enjoy playing and take the audience with them on their journey.

Paradigm Jaunt are:

Enjoy the Music & feel the Rhythm!

Dr Steve


“Raise it High, Raise it With Pride!”

The first Dr Steve's Jazz Surgery of 2023 explores the notion of "standard" thru a musical philosophical investigation of popular jazz standards and the endless potential they offer for 21st century jazz musicians.


Q. What is a jazz standard? Who decides? And how can contemporary musicians contribute to our understandings of the "canon" of jazz standards?


Joining Dr Steve on this quest of musical philosophical discovery will be his good friends and longstanding musical collaborators, Mike Green double bass and Miles Levin drums (with the man himself on piano and philosophical interludes).

“All welcome!”
