Paul Shapiro

Paul Shapiro, saxophonist, flautist, composer and bandleader, has been active in New York 's creative music scene for over two decades. Throughout the eighties he led his own avant-funk band Foreign Legion, which was featured on Emergency Records' compilation "This Is The Funk." Paul was a longtime member of Philip Johnston's Microscopic Septet that toured internationally and recorded for Stash and Osmosis Records. In the early nineties Paul started to record for many of the new producers of dance music and hip-hop. His most noted work from that period is his song-length flute solo on Frankie Knuckles' "The Whistle Song," which became a top-ten pop hit in the UK, and an international dance club classic

Paul Shapiro: Shofarot Verses

Read "Shofarot Verses" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Nel nome dello shofar, strumento-simbolo della musica ebraica che compare in copertina intrecciato a un sax alto, si svolge questo album, che parte con un monologo di Paul Shapiro e va poi a impantanarsi piuttosto velocemente nelle secche di una musica che rispetta sì i canoni del filone di appartenenza, ma lo fa con fin troppa ...

His fourth album for John Zorn's Tzadik label Radical Jewish Culture series enriches his unique and personal art. Shofarot Verses is ...

Paul Shapiro's Ribs and Brisket Revue: Essen

Read "Essen" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff

Essen. Come il titolo di una canzone-menù yiddish sulle Catskills Mountains.

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
