EIJF: Paul Richey and the Fusionauts
After Norma Winstone's group I headed across the street to the OSPC and heard Paul Richey and the Fusionauts and was pleased to be there. Paul and a great band of locals had put together his compositions in the jazz fusion style.. It was powerful and sensitive too. Mo Lefever played with awesome verve and conviction and the compositions were very hip and well thought out and played with conviction and humility. Everyone came away feeling wonderful about what they heard. Congrats to Paul R. and band: Paul Richey piano and synth (and compositions !!), John Taylor electric bass, Mo Lefever Guitar, Dave Morgan trumpet and Steve Gallant drums (marvelous). It was truly a worthy event for the festival and certainly will draw more and more fans in the future.. Well done!!
