Birds of Paradox incorporates three very distinct voices into a creative whole. The
trio, joined for this concert by bassist André Lachance, blends jazz and improvised
music with traditional Chinese, Western and Indian music into a vibrant expression of
life in Vancouver. Strong melodies, interesting grooves, and cool sonic textures are
the common currency.
This collaborative trio was formed in 2007 to explore the fusion of composition and
improvisation. The unique instrumentation provides a wealth of textural possibilities
to these versatile composer/performers. After this Vancouver concert, the group is
heading to Ontario to play the highly regarded Guelph Jazz Festival as part of the
dusk til dawn extravaganza, Nuit Blanche on September 7th.
Birds of Paradox's self-titled CD will be available at Ironworks, and can also be found
on CD Baby, iTunes and other online sources.
