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.

Dr Steve's Jazz Surgery
♦    Thursday 8th June    ♦


Steve Tromans



This week Dr Steve’s Jazz Surgery will feature Tromans away from his usual place at the piano and focusing on his work on the melodica, alongside the double bassist Benedict Muirhead & the drummer Tymoteusz Jozwiak. Tromans has composed an evening of new music specially for the occasion, drawing influence from John Zorn's Masada, J. S. Bach’s organ works, Augustus Pablo's Jamaican dub, and Ornette Coleman’s The Empty Foxhole project.


The philosophical themes explored thru discussion and music will revolve around issues of authenticity in art and life, and how music provides a means of moving beyond the boundaries that divide us unnecessarily in all that we do as fellow inhabitants on the third planet from the star we call the sun.


Be there & be entertained!
All welcome!
