Check out my video: WE WILL HAVE OURSELVES A FLOOD.

 

This represents my debut as a director and features veteran actors, John Tench and Tony Nappo as Minister of War and Banker, respectively. Brian Neller plays the devilish Mystery Man; Toronto Film School grad, Heather Byrne is the Minister's Secretary; Atika Irvine-Tench plays the Operations Room Coordinator and Jack Irvine-Tench appears as the ever stoic propeller-carrying Wireless Operator Airman.

 

Damian Jacobs soldiered on as cameraman and editor, scaling walls to film the air raid siren and trudging through bogs to get that perfect angle shot. What a trooper! Arkadio Ambienti set the lights to perfection.

 

SYNOPSIS: The Minister of War and his pal, the Banker, conjure up a scheme to enlist the services of a shady character who will guarantee victory, provided they sign a declaration before midnight.

Check out my llive performance video, Coleman Hawkins, Tenor Man, third in a series shot during my CD release party at The Rivoli in Toronto on April 27, 2013.

The song tells the story of two legendary tenor saxophonists, Coleman Hawkins (1904-1969) and Lester Young (1909-1959), locking horns in a 'cutting session' in Kansas City, circa late 1930's.

Sax players, Alison Young and Matt Woroshyl, return to the stage midway through to give us a taste of what a cutting session may have felt like. You can feel the heat rising as these top-notch Canadian horn players step up and knock it out!

Coleman Hawkins, Tenor Man is the 6th track on my debut album, "Faux Pop - Vol. 1". On the album version, I played all instruments, so, to be performing the song live in the company of so many fine musicians was a real thrill!

I've now posted three videos below for your enjoyment. I hope you find time to view them. If you are so inclined, please like and subscribe to my YouTube channel.

The September 14th show at the Rivoli was a blast! Such a wonderful turn out. Thanks to all that made it a memorable night. And special thanks to Paige Cora for a fantastic opening set!

Had a good show at Murphy's Pub in Oshawa last Thursday (Mar7). This was the first performance for my band, The Soulless Young Devils, and they delivered big time! Good energy, good vibes! Thanks to everyone who came out and to Will McGuirk for inviting us. The night was dedicated to Stompin' Tom Connors - RIP. We hope he enjoyed the show!

 

On November 19, 2012, I delivered "Faux Pop - Vol. 1" to CBC Radio Music and Canadian Campus and Community Radio stations. It feels good to get the music out there!

 

My website is a work in progress and I'll be filling in the blanks in the not too distant future. That said, I just added an "About Songs" page and 'Liner Notes' to the "About Album" page. In the meantime, feel free to drop me a line through the Contact page or join my Email List. Thanks for stopping by!

 

All best wishes,

 

Paul
