Album Notes
Paul Beaudry and Pathways is a group of veteran jazz musicians from New York City who have performed world wide. The group's music is heavily based on the jazz and blues tradition and uses that as a starting point for musical exploration. Expanding the traditions of Duke Ellington and Dizzy Gillespie, the group's mission is to share their spirit and music with audiences worldwide in the form of stunning and memorable performances. All compositions are either written or arranged by the band members.

On the Pathways debut CD: "I am inspired by the ensembles led by some of my favorite bass players as well as the ensembles led in particular by Dizzy Gillespie, Cannonball Adderley, Herbie Hancock, and Tony Williams. My concept was to put together an ensemble deeply rooted in the blues yet can go in any number of musical directions as these musical forefathers have done to a legendary degree.

Directing the Pathways band is one of the greatest experiences of my life. This group routinely exceeds my expectations as each individual is a great musician, composer, person, educator, and bandleader in their own right. This music marks our first official release as a band. My intention is to create music of the highest artistic quality that is exciting, emotionally engaging, fun, and prompts repeated listenings. I believe we achieve that here." - Paul Beaudry, 2010
