In a nutshell
Killer triple bill from the increasingly active London-based record label, Whirlwind Recordings.
Whirlwind head honcho, bassist, composer and producer Michael Janisch (nominated in 2016 for a MOBO Award in the Jazz category after releasing his latest solo album Paradigm Shift), premieres a terrific Stateside Quartet on their first European tour-date with the Pakistani/American guitarist Rez Abbasi – rapidly emerging as one of today’s major new voices on his instrument – alongside Grammy-winning alto saxophonist John O'Gallagher (Joe Henderson, Maria Schneider), trumpeter Jason Palmer (Herbie Hancock, Kurt Rosenwinkel) and the brilliant drummer Clarence Penn (Michael Brecker, Maria Schneider). The band will be recording Janisch's next solo album during the tour.
