Well versed in both classical and jazz saxophone, Paul brings a unique and diverse set of skills to his performances on the instrument. This unique combination of skills is displayed in the original compositions on his debut album Actualize (2012) where he explores how the saxophone can be used as an accompaniment instrument in improvised music. This original approach to the saxophone draws upon the many extended techniques available to the saxophone and explores the performance potential of the instrument in improvised music.
