Michael Paulo – Beautiful Day

Saxophonist Michael Paulo has been involved with the beloved music for more than 35 years. During his period as sideman for singer legend Al Jarreau he released his debut album One Passion(1989).  Soon followed Fusebox (1990), Save The Children(1994), My Heart And Soul (1996), Midnight Passion (1999), Sax For Christmas (2000), Beautiful (2006) and Michael Paulo with the Magenta Orchestra (2010).

After a long hiatus Michael returns with the new album Beautiful Day (2018). Michael has surrounded himself on the album with an exclusive group of musicians: Gregg Karukas, Kimo Cornwell, Brian Simpson, Tracy Carter  (keyboards), Roberto Vally, Freddie Washington, Darryl Williams, David Inamine (bass), Gordon Campbell, Michael White, Land Richards, Sergio Gonzalez (drums), Paul Brown, Fred Schreuders, Paul Jackson Jr., Ray Parker Jr. (guitar), Lenny Castro, Ramon Yslas (percussion), David Benoit (piano) and Peter White (keyboards, guitar).

It is the bright moments that stay with us forever. Beautiful Day featuring Paul Brown on guitar provides us with the suitable background music for these lucky islands of life. Mister Magic (1975) was one of Grover Washington’s most popular albums and often covered. Michael adds a sparkling funky note to his interpretation. The guitar solo of Fred Schreuders is a brainwave freshening the tune.
