A Melodic Journey Through the Great American Songbook
Though the media has compared Paul's right hand to that of Oscar Peterson's and his sound to Bill Evans, though very flattered by such praise, Paul dismisses the comparissons by such generous reivewers. Paul describes his sound as melodic, gentle & patient. The audience will find he savours and almost caresses the tune - staying true to the melodies of the composer. Paul is playing his favorite melodies from the Great American Songbook.

Presented by the TD Niagara Jazz Festival in partnership with The Hare Wine Co .

The Musicians Clinics of Canada diagnosed him with severe tendonitis in both forearms. While this was a career ending medical diagnosis & soul crushing news, Paul was soon after diagnosed with severe Tinnitus. To a musician making a living as a recording & touring artist who had just broken into the US market, this heartbreaking news sent Paul into an emotional & financial downward spiral. Read more.
