Nick Walters and The Paradox Ensemble

Biography Nick Walters and The Paradox Ensemble

Paradox Ensemble
Manchester and London-based nonet led by trumpet player Nick Walters (Riot Jazz, Beats & Pieces Big Band). Bringing together many strands of his musical experience, Nick has taken inspiration from jazz composers such as Gil Evans, electronic artists such as Aphex Twin, and from artists who blur the lines between the two, such as Jaga Jazzist and Tortoise. The result is, as Manchester Jazz Festival put it ahead of the groupʼs live debut in 2013, ‘a coherent synthesis of electronics, live effects and samples but retaining an earthy groove.ʼ Paradox Ensemble released ‘Entanglement’ in August 2013 on Efpi Records.
