"Girl in Green" -- the back story:

19 years ago I was thrilled to play on and produce a recording featuring the great David Liebman along with Grammy winner Ed Calle. Supporting these two giants were some of Houston's musical giants in our very midst: the incomparable Dennis Dotson (trumpet), eternally enigmatic Brennen Nase (bass), stalwart James Metcalfe (percussion) and our good friend Mike Drake (drums) from Dallas. As things often go in this business, the small record company broke up and our masters lay untouched in hidden vaults for the past two decades. Now, thanks to PARMA Records and the efforts of many, are finally be able to share the fruits of our labor.

SOLO PIANO IMPROVISATIONS: quiet music for meditation, healing, prayer or whimsy

Peace Offering

Paul English (2015)

In cart Not available Out of stock

An ancient forest, majesty and tranquility, leaves glistening from a light rain now flickering with sunshine, whispering a song of silent stillness, delicate piano musings of peace and comfort.

What our listeners are saying:

"Getting to know jazz artist and Steinway artist Paul English over the past couple of summers has been an honor...and his new CD called Peace Offering is exactly what our world needs, literally!! Amazing how Paul has musically found a way to bring one's mind to a calm, meditative state without one knowing it's happening..... We all could use a lot more of Paul English.....?thank you Paul?." (Matt Guggenheim, Piano Technician for the Portland Symphony Orchestra of Portland, Maine)

"...true meditations: easy, quiet, and calm. Relaxing and soothing throughout ... the perfect complement to a dimly lit evening or a rainy afternoon, with a glass of wine or a good book, alone or with a friend. Any occasion where soft jazz or instrumental piano meditations are called for is a perfect application for this CD. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for something soft and low-key." (John)

amor a roma

Paul English (2018)

In cart Not available Out of stock

The palindromic title suggests the sweetness of an endless, timeless romance -- a beautiful Italian sunset, the delicate darkness of night and dawnlight images of a beautiful grand lake. Ever thoughtful and gentle, these piano improvisations are rich with the influence of classical and jazz music.

ORIGINAL COMPOSITIONS, JAZZ, POP AND HOLIDAY STANDARDS

Cloud Illusions

Paul English (2017)

Light, playful, interactive and melodic jazz renditions of standards and popular songs.

Paul is joined by jazz vocalist, Elisha Jordan (vocals) and long-time associate, Brennen Nase (guitar/bass) in a delightfully intimate trio setting of familiar jazz standards and popular songs. Paul's thoughtful, sensitive, sometimes whimsical arrangements complement the electric improvisational interplay of these extraordinary musicians.

"The high art of improvisation features musical conversation that is spontaneous, fresh, intelligible and entertaining. I think you will hear this in these recordings."
