    22a present a project from one of the most respected, yet underrated musicians in the UK Jazz scene. Trumpeter, friend and long time label affiliate Nick Walters brings The Paradox Ensemble back to life with a new album titled 'Awakening'. The thirteen piece group combine spiritual and eastern jazz moods with West African rhythms, channeling the spirit of Woody Shaw, Charles Mingus and absent friends. The band features some familiar faces such as Ed Cawthorne (aka Tenderlonious) on tenor sax and flute, Aidan Shepherd (Ruby Rushton) on accordion, and of course the incomparable Nick Walters (Ruby Rushton & Riot Jazz) on trumpet and synths. Highly recommended!
