The norm on a Banach space gives rise to a subharmonic function on the complex plane for which the distributional Laplacian gives a Riesz measure. This measure is calculated explicitly here for Lebesgue Lp spaces and the von~Neumann-Schatten trace ideals. Banach spaces that are q-uniformly PL-convex in the sense of Davis, Garling and Tomczak-Jaegermann are characterized in terms of the mass distribution of this measure. This gives a new proof that the trace ideals cp are 2-uniformly PL-convex for 1 leq p leq 2.
