Album Notes
Paul can attribute mainly being turned on to jazz for life, by having the opportunity to meet the late Dizzy Gillespie, the main sponsor of the Blues Alley Supper Club youth ensemble in Washington, D.C. During high school, he played for 3 years in the youth ensemble, which provided live entertainment at places such as the Wolftrap Farm Park and the Blues Alley Supper Club. After graduating in 1990, he attended Virginia Tech for 5 years, whose jazz program was under the direction of the famous jazz violinist, Joseph Kennedy, Jr. Aside from his own jazz project, the Tangled Trio, Paul was contacted through the music department as a local tenor saxophonist for various touring groups, such as the Shirells, in this college town of Blacksburg, VA. Since relocating to San Diego in 1995, Paul has been a local tenor 'sub-man' for other rock / reggae / funk projects such as RA Brotherhood, Deville, Phazz, Pucho and his Latin Soul Brothers, Pink Froyd tribute, Creed (Reggae), and many others here in San Diego. Venues as a sideman have included the 4th and B, the Belly-Up Tavern, Brick by Brick, Winston's (OB), Blind Melons, Moondoggies, the Onyx Room, Dizzy's, Juke Joint, and many other San Diego clubs and restaurants. With so many other players styles and ideas to constantly follow, he has continued studying with other saxophone artists, such as Mr. Steve Feierabend and original bop cat, Mr. Charles McPherson.

Jazz as it should be
Biased perhaps but I can say this is one of the best jazz albums I've bought in years. And that includes some serious competition. Paul (and the rest of the ensemble) are extremely talented musicians and this talent comes shining through in 'Generosity'. I highly recommend it to any jazz lover.

The music is energetic and inspirational. We love listening to it !
This is a great CD that gives you a lot of energy while at a dinner party or hanging around the house. Give it a try anywhere you are. Another place it is good to listen to it is while cruizing around on your boat. Everyone that listens to it wants a copy!!

Going to work will never be the same...
Paul Viani and his Quartet have truly arrived on the jazz scene with the release of Generosity. Paul's original compositions are unique masterworks in a genre that he is deeply rooted and dedicated. His talent for improvisation shines with Potato Chips and his lyrical sensitivities prevail in Ashes are Falling and Gymnopedie No. 3. This is one CD I listen to repeatedly, and each time is a new experience.
