Paul (* in Texas) enjoys performing locally with his various jazz and classical crossover groups: PICO (Paul's Improvising Chamber Orchestra), PIVO (Paul's Improvising Vocal Orchestra), The Paul English Jazz Quartet, et al.

He has performed and recorded with such greats as Dizzy Gillespie, Arnett Cobb, David Liebman, David "Fathead" Newman, Bud Shank, Mark O’Connor and John Patitucci.
