The Paul English Quartet
I recently had the privilege of once again photographing my old friend, Houston music legend Paul English, and his quartet during a recording session. They were at the new state-of-the-art recording facility at San Jacinto College, where department head and long-time Houston sound engineer extraordinaire, Lester Williams, has overseen the growth of one of the premiere sound engineering departments in the country. The quartet consists of some of the best musicians in Texas: David Caceres on sax and vocals, Rankin Peters on bass, and Tim Solook on drums. These guys can play with anyone, and their live performances are akin to sitting next to Chick Corea one minute, and maybe Dave Brubeck the next, and Paul, David and Tim are prodigious composers in their own right. They never cease to amaze. I'm pleased with our results, and honored to call these gentlemen friends.
