Peace Offering

Paul English (2015)

An ancient forest, majesty and tranquility, leaves glistening from a light rain now flickering with sunshine, whispering a song of silent stillness, delicate piano musings of peace and comfort.

What our listeners are saying:

"Getting to know jazz artist and Steinway artist Paul English over the past couple of summers has been an honor...and his new CD called Peace Offering is exactly what our world needs, literally!! Amazing how Paul has musically found a way to bring one's mind to a calm, meditative state without one knowing it's happening..... We all could use a lot more of Paul English.....ūüôŹthank you PaulūüėĆ." (Matt Guggenheim, Piano Technician for the Portland Symphony Orchestra of Portland, Maine)

"...true meditations: easy, quiet, and calm. Relaxing and soothing throughout ... the perfect complement to a dimly lit evening or a rainy afternoon, with a glass of wine or a good book, alone or with a friend. Any occasion where soft jazz or instrumental piano meditations are called for is a perfect application for this CD. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for something soft and low-key." (John)

The palindromic title suggests the sweetness of an endless, timeless romance -- a beautiful Italian sunset, the delicate darkness of night and dawnlight images of a beautiful grand lake. Ever thoughtful and gentle, these piano improvisations are rich with the influence of classical and jazz music.

Cloud Illusions

Paul English (2017)

Light, playful, interactive and melodic jazz renditions of standards and popular songs.

Paul is joined by jazz vocalist, Elisha Jordan (vocals) and long-time associate, Brennen Nase (guitar/bass) in a delightfully intimate trio setting of familiar jazz standards and popular songs. Paul's thoughtful, sensitive, sometimes whimsical arrangements complement the electric improvisational interplay of these extraordinary musicians.
