  • Description

    'Paper Jam' is their first album by the duo of violinist Christian Garrick and pianist David Gordon. It represents their long-established alliance in sparkling, eclectic, fettle. Feast your ears on John Taylor's remarkable "Coffee Time" and Jay Ungar's haunting "Ashokan Farewell". A genuine live acoustic recording from a truly original pair of British greats.

    Christian Garrick, simply the world's finest jazz violinist, at home in a South Bank recital hall performing with great friend Nigel Kennedy, or a seedy jazz club, or even a seedy bookstore. He is much feted, much recorded, much in demand. David Gordon is a regular member of Christian's quartet, a jazz vampire by night and a leading classical harpsichordist by day. In duo they become as if one instrument, magically creating spellbinding soundscapes whilst spinning slip-sliding rhythms, questing musical adventures without inhibition or hesitation.

    "…brilliant - musical intelligence, humour, sharpness, swing, superb improvisational skills - they have it all." - The Guardian
