36th Vilnius Jazz Festival. 12-16 October, 2022
Django Bates & Human Chain Vilnius Jazz'2002
Django Bates & Human Chain (United Kingdom):

Django Bates - keyboards
Iain Ballamy - saxophone
Martin France - wooden drums & electronic percussion
Michael Mondesir - electric bass guitar

guest vocalist - Josefine Lindstrand

Electroencephalograms of the four brains involved in Human Chain have shown that during performance the parameters of their brainwaves are synchronous to such a degree that experts believe the mind of the quartet to have become atomically fused, resulting in an octocameral metapsychic phenomenon which leads to the superhumanly panchromultirhythmelodelic doodahs which induce involuntary toe and head movements in audiences as far flung as South America, Japan, New York, China, Harrogate and Sarajevo.

Human Chain will joined by the irrepressable Josefine Lindstrand for this performance in Vilnius.

this could cause decacameral phenomena which may result in spilt drinks, uncontrolled yelps and other manifestations of pleasure.
