15th October 2017: New band, new tour, new recording + EFG London Jazz Festival – NOV 2018


Very much looking forward to hitting the road next month for a brand new project with some dates in England. Info reprinted below from my record label: -MJ



Whirlwind founder, bassist, composer and producer Michael Janisch premiers a new band for their first European tour-date with guitarist Rez Abbasi – 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.
