Return of the Paul

It’s been a while since I posted here — but the time has not been wasted! The Paul Creative Efforts Fund (a.k.a. my bank account) was running low, and I spent June and much of July working on MPR’s new online contribution system. Yes, jobs are rough — getting up in the morning and all that — but those folks sure are a nice bunch to work for. Still, it does put a crimp in my composing and recording activities.

A special thanks to all of you who donated to this site. You helped push back the inevitable break in this project, and I’m honored by your confidence and kind words.

I’m getting back in the saddle again. I’ll be posting a piece or two from a little four-hands free improv I did with my buddy Todd Harper (of Keys Please) … and later this month, I have a very special treat: some recordings I made of my teacher and friend, the inimatable Don Betts, playing in his own living room. These performances are gems, I promise you. I just need to get them edited and mastered….

And, of course, I’ll be continuing with the remastering of my own performances. So start checking back often: In the Hands, music is afoot. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.)
