|Joey Calderazzo and Paul Carr|
Paul is the moving force behind the Mid-Atlantic Jazz Festival that just completed its third yearly happening this past President's Day weekend. Sunday, February 19, Paul and his saxophones led a terrific band of Joey Calderazzo on piano, Terrell Stafford on trumpet, Michael Bowie on bass and Lewis Nash on drums that in part was a celebration of Paul's superb new recording, Standard Definition, on which they all play. The live performance was a stunning cap to the weekend's varied program. Perhaps the highlight of this set was a duet between Carr and Calderazzo on Cheek To Cheek. Here are some photos from that set.
