Out Now: Pianist Paul Edis Releases Debut Album The Still Point Of The Turning World

(Press release)

“An absorbing piano recital” - Record Collector Magazine

AVAILABLE NOW

via Lateralize Records

ALBUM LAUNCH LIVE AT CADOGAN HALL, NOV 5th

‘A brilliant young pianist.’ – The Guardian

Today, British jazz pianist Paul Edis has released his mesmerising debut solo album, The Still Point Of The Turning World. The full album is available now via Bandcamp.

“Start Over seemed to sum up the dreamlike atmosphere of this album perfectly,” Edis explains. “There’s something about this jazz-waltz feel that has always inspired me as a musician and as a writer – exploring these rhythmic possibilities is almost like inhabiting a polyrhythmic personality.” 

With an unmistakable style that sounds like the missing link between Bill Evans, Brad Mehldau and Claude Debussy, Edis is one of the most important British jazz artists to emerge in the last decade. Having released a string of critically acclaimed independent albums, he has spent the past year composing the music for The Still Point Of The Turning World, which was recorded in London’s Masterchord Studios.

‘A major voice in British Jazz…Edis is an incredibly fertile composer and improviser’ - Jazz Journal

Paul Edis is one of the leading creative musicians in the UK today. As a performer, composer and educator, he has built a reputation for consistently delivering new and original ideas, seeking to innovate within his work whilst always paying respect to both the Jazz and Classical music traditions. In whatever genre or musical context he inhabits, Paul is passionate about melody and expression.

He has released several critically acclaimed recordings of new music in recent years, regularly receives commissions from a wide variety of organisations, and is known for his communication skills and breadth of knowledge, working as an educator for organisations including Sage Gateshead, National Youth Jazz Orchestra and National Youth Jazz Collective. 

‘A pianist who has compositional flair’ - Jazzwise

As well as leading his own sextet, trio and performing solo engagements, Paul works regularly with vocalist Jo Harrop, saxophonist Vasilis Xenopoulos, and he has performed alongside leading jazz names including Jon Faddis, Alan Barnes, Bruce Adams, Nigel Price, Jim Mullen, Tim Garland, Julian Siegel, Tony Kofi, Steve Waterman, Iain Ballamy and Mark Nightingale. His music has been played on the radio in the UK, US and in Europe.
