The second show in WPKN’s live music series, Sundays at Six, is April 18th at the Acoustic Café, with jazz guitar master, Paul Meyers, joined by Steve Davis on trombone. Paul combines a deep understanding of the jazz tradition with strong influences of Brazilian, Latin and Classical music to create a unique sound and concept. James Gavin of the NY Times described Paul as “…one of the most eloquent guitarists since Kenny Burell…”
Since 1993, Paul has toured the world performing with Jon Hendricks and, between ’97 & ’08, did the same with Andy Bey. Gary Burton and Pat Metheny recorded Paul’s composition, Panama, on their “Reunion” CD. He’s recorded and performed with Geri Allen, Karin Allyson, Kenny Barron, Bruce Barth, Ron Carter, Eliane Elias, Eddie Gomez, Bob Magnussen, Jovino Santos Neto and Annie Ross to name a few.
Paul has recently released two new CDs: “World on a String” and “The Paul Meyers Quartet featuring Frank Wess”, tenor sax and flute master.
Trombonist, Steve Davis, will join Paul for this show. In the 90’s Steve gained notoriety working with the bands of jazz legends Art Blakey, Jackie McLean and Chick Corea’s Origins. He’s a founding member of One for All, a sextet with whom he still performs and records. He has released a dozen cds of his own and, recently, a collaboration with pianist Hank Jones called Eloquence.
