Paradigm Shift

If organ-driven jazz saw its heyday in the late '60s, nobody bothered to tell Paradigm Shift bandleader/guitarist Melvin Henderson or co-founder/organist Gerry Youngman. Both men cut their teeth on landmark records during that era but have also since then served as sidemen for some of the giants of the form. And now, with a new generation's perspective, courtesy of forward-thinking drummer/composer Sean Jefferson, the band is poised to launch soul jazz into its bright, funky future while tearing up stages across the globe with boiling-hot grooves and a gritty attack that pleasantly recaptures the music's rightful street-level ambience.
