Can't Let Go - Drummer, producer, and composer Paul Peress has been hard at work over the past year, honing a selection of original compositions geared towards capturing the magic of this group's musical gifts... The result is his new 2010 release, "CAN'T LET GO", which features a horn section of Tower of Power alumni, and former bandmembers of Grover Washington Jr., James Taylor, Chico Hamilton, Rod Stewart... Peress' long foray into divergent musical styles has unearthed a combination of Jazz, Rock, Brazilian, and Funk influences in this eclectic yet powerful piece of work with themes of peace, longing, and lost love driving the vocal tunes, and honest, from-the-heart melodies giving life to the instrumental compositions.

Then Again - Following his Grammy nomintated debut CD, “Awakening”, Paul emerges from the studio with a fresh, ambitious, and honest representation of his signature latin-jazz repertoire. With a cover design Peter Max, the CD features at its core the well traveled trio of Peress, Helio Alves, and Lincoln Goines. Helio has graced the piano keys on 3 Grammy winning CDs (with Yo Yo Ma, Paquito D’ Rivera, and Joe Henderson); Lincoln has provided the low end with Dave Valentine, Jon Lucien, and the Caribbean Jazz Project. These three have great chemistry - their music dancing around the great harmonic and rhythmic interplay. Two other greats - Brandon Fields on sax, and John Tropea on Guitar - round out the recording. The title track — written by Paul, features a Samba in 6, and a great cascading melody ... the rest of the music runs the gamut from West Africa, to Cuba, to Brazil and back....

Awakening features a who's who of international Jazz and World-Music artists. The vibe is Latin, Brazilian, and Afro-Cuban with an eclectic mix of originals and hip, cutting edge interpretations of classics - from the Beatles to Maxwell to Herbie Hancock and from the United States to Cuba to Brazil. Fabulous singing by Gabriela Anders, some incredible guitar mastery by Jeff Golub and Mark Whitfield, and virtuoso piano playing by Mark Soskin and Hector Martignon, combine to make this CD one of the finest new contemporary jazz releases.
