Sonic explorations, soulful grooves, nasty funk. Paradigm Shift is a revolutionary approach to Jazz-Funk.
Scientists and historians use the term “Paradigm Shift” to describe the moments in history when an established scientific theory or paradigm is replaced by one that changes everything. The shift entails looking at the world differently: When Copernicus made everyone see that the earth is not the center of the universe, everything changed. Actual Proof’s debut CD likewise institutes a sonic revolution, a new approach to Jazz-Funk.
Actual Proof is a unique jazz-fusion project that utlizes mallet percussion (xylophone, vibraphone, marimba), keys and synths, electric bass, acoustic and electronic percussion. The group expresses itself through rich grooves and rythmic explorations. The group draws on a wide range of traditions (Jazz, Afro-Cuban, Funk, and World-Beat) to create a unique and captivating sound. Actual Proof’s debut CD contains ten original songs that capture each member’s musical experience.
