Michael Janisch is an award-winning electric & double bassist. An American based in London, his multitude of talents across the music industry have seen him become one of the most active and in-demand musicians of his generation, as well as a linchpin figure between US & European artists.
He has performed with legends such as Quincy Jones, Sir John Dankworth and Lee Konitz and now comes to North Yorkshire to present music from his critically acclaimed album ‘Purpose Built’, one of the most important releases in the UK in the last five years.

“Janisch seizes the instrument with a blend of speed and energy as if he wants to be melody, harmony and rhythm all at once.” – The Telegraph

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
