Exciting new Sax Trio ‘Partikel’ signs to Whirlwind Recordings!

‘Partikel,’ comprised of saxophonist Duncan Eagles, bassist Max Luthert and drummer Eric Ford, have signed to Whirlwind and will be releasing their 2nd album titled ‘Cohesion’ officially on NOV 7th with an extensive UK tour.  Partikel made big waves on the UK jazz scene in 2010 with the release of their eponymous debut, causing a great stir in the jazz press, which cited them as one of the next big jazz acts of the younger generation on the scene.  Their music draws heavily on combining their love of world rhythms with the strong influence of the New York Jazz scene, mixed with an individual take on the classic saxophone trio.  They are a very dedicated band of youngsters who have really put the time in together and this is evident on one hearing.  Whirlwind Recordings is very excited to be releasing this exciting new music.  More info visit

Michael Janisch’s ‘Paradigm Shift’ Tour a huge Success!

Michael Janisch’s recent 2 week tour around the UK and Ireland culminated in a live recording at the Pizza Express Jazz Club on the 4 and 5 of May, and the music was smoking! After the usual sifting through the music, this will end up being MJ’s second album, featuring Jason Palmer trumpet, Colin Stranahan Drums, Paul Booth Tenor Sax, and Leo Genovese Piano/Keys.  The music captured was very special on these nights and WWR is very excited about this release.   Also, the Showcase gigs were a great success, and we can now happily say that 165 individuals are now owners of Michael Janisch’s debut album ‘Purpose Built’  Thanks for all the support shown on this tour!  There were a few exceptional reviews from the tour, one from Birmingham (click HERE), one from Glasgow (click HERE) and one from Newcastle (click HERE).  Stay tuned for more on this new music.
