Live From Birmingham: Partisans, Rascals Of Rhythm, Amok Amor, John McEntire & Schneider Kacirek

Partisans
Wolverhampton Arena Theatre
November 14, 2015

Partisans have now been playing together for two decades, in a completely unchanging four-piece configuration. Bonds have been formed, lines have intertwined, rapport greases repertoire negotiation, and comfort encourages greater risk-taking. The band made several comments about savouring the Arena Theatre's vibrations, ...

Michael Janisch: The Whirlwind, Paradigm Shift and London's Label of the Moment

Read "Michael Janisch: The Whirlwind, Paradigm Shift and London's Label of the Moment" reviewed by Phil Barnes

However you look at it Michael Janisch is an extraordinarily driven, highly motivated, success story.

It's no coincidence ...

Read "The Cut Off Point" reviewed by Roger Farbey

With four albums already to his name and another four by the band Partisans which he co-leads with saxophonist Julian Siegel, British guitar phenomenon Phil Robson hardly needs any introduction, save that his new musical departure is realised by an organ trio offering a smörgåsbord of exciting and imaginative compositions.

“Thief" hits the ground ...

Phil Barnes' Favourite Albums of 2014

Read "Phil Barnes' Favourite Albums of 2014" reviewed by Phil Barnes

The sheer volume of great records that I have managed to hear, and the knowledge that there are many more that I haven't, means that I make no pretence of presenting a list of the definitive albums of the year. Instead, this is a snapshot list of the ten records that I have enjoyed the most ...

Partisans: Partisans - Swamp

Read "Partisans - Swamp" reviewed by Phil Barnes

Partisans, seen by many as the godfathers of the flourishing UK prog jazz scene, plough their own idiosyncratic path on this their fifth album, and first to appear on London label of the moment Whirlwind. The title conjures up fears of a blues rock abomination but thankfully the gentlemen have refrained from donning bandanas or placing ...

Partisans: Never the Same Way Twice

Read "Partisans: Never the Same Way Twice" reviewed by John Kelman

It's been five years since Partisans--the British jazz group (not to be confused with the also-British punk rock band The Partisans) cited as the godfathers of the new wave of British jazz, first emerging in 1997 with the out-of-print self-titled debut on the EFZ label--last released an album, specifically the superlative By Proxy (Babel, 2009), which ...

To get a feel of what's happening, the place for live music is no longer Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, but a place called The Vortex, directed by Oliver Weindling. Weindling is also the ...
