Paradigm Shift
Paradigm Shift
Paradigm Shift: a fundamental change in approach or underlying assumptions. The term cropped up in the ‘70s, around the time big names like Miles Davis or Herbie Hancock were shaking the bedrock of the jazz music scene. But jazz didn’t stop there. It expanded. Jazz builds, grows, gets broken, and rebuilds, taking on a new shape with each iteration. It’s happened many times before, and it doesn't seem to be letting up.



Enter Paradigm Shift, three musicians focused on funk, jazz and groove music. Jazz is more than a historical genre; it’s a genre of the soul, a movement of notes cascading up and down unexpected turns of beats, sonic sounds pulling and drawing you in, shifting your world into a world both foreign and familiar, like when you stay up late into a warm summer night with a passionate lover and lose track of time, when you close your eyes and can feel your cells vibrating to the rhythms of the music, when you suddenly realize you're on the cusp of something big.
