Description

Paul is a Melbourne based saxophonist (alto/baritone/tenor/soprano) who has been performing professionally with various ensembles around town for the last 13 years. A while ago his group released their debut CD “QUIRKY” through move records, which is available Australia wide at good record stores and has received positive airplay and reviews.


Apart from performing his original material at Jazz Clubs such as Bennetts Lane and Dizzys Jazz Bar, he plays a wide variety of jazz standards and popular music at many weddings, corporate functions, tafe's / university's, clubs / pubs, shopping centres (roving acoustic) and product launches etc. Styles range from modern jazz, funky acid jazz, swing, bossa nova, latin, ballads etc. Repertoire includes tunes made popular by such greats as Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Michael Buble, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, Herbie Hancock, Stan Getz and Antonio Carlos Jobim amongst many others.

Paul works in Duo / Trio / Quartet / Quintet settings and can add vocals too if required. (Instrumentation can include saxophone, guitar, piano, double or electric bass, drums, trumpet, vocals etc, performed by some of Melbourne’s best musicians) Some past performances include the Launch of the Lexus Centre for Eddie McGuire and the Collingwood Football Club, the St.Kilda Football club Foundation dinner and numerous appearances at the Melbourne Grand Prix.

A major highlight of Paul’s career so far was spending time and attending a private lesson with one of his all time jazz heroes, Branford Marsalis. A few years ago he was fortunate enough to jam and perform with members of the Cuban group “Buena Vista Social Club” on a visit to Melbourne and more recently was honoured to have Australian jazz legend Don Burrows join him to perform a full set with his trio at a function at Crown.
