Paul has delighted audiences in New Zealand on more than 14 occasions. His long standing collaboration of 15 years with colleague Mark Lockett (drums) is known to produce music that is highly interactive, energetic, and engaging.
Paul’s compositions are influenced by jazz, classical, Cuban and folk traditions, producing music that’s rich in detail, varied in character, yet remaining uniquely personal. His music simultaneously pays tribute to the Jazz greats whilst being highly energetic and reflecting personal life experiences.
“On ballads, (Paul) could wring a tear from a walnut and when playing up tempo he navigates the terrain with ease. His compositions are engaging.” – John Fenton
“Hard fast and exciting playing…with great ideas….that’s what I like about Paul Van Ross and his music…check him out.” – George Garzone
