"Paul has emerged as a breathtaking vibraphone player with taste, time and a formidable percussive technique.
Paul really swings and is an absolute pleasure to play with"
Alan Barnes writes:… "I would recommend Paul to any jazz festival or club; he is a highly-talented multifaceted musician. He displays a superb understanding of group interplay which results in a very original and virtuosic approach.
His repertoire is vast - I've never caught him out on a tune yet - and his involvement when playing is total.
IIt’s great to see that in recent years he has applied all his talents to performing on the vibraphone. He has taken to the instrument like, cliche I know, but a duck to water and seems to be as at ease with the instrument as he always has been with the piano.
As an M.D. Paul handles all situations with aplomb and without an ounce of pretence. His arranging skills from small band to full string orchestra are well documented on record. His charts always have the qualities of taste, subtlety and surprise.
Paul shines in all situations and plays with a great swinging feel."
