Paul Paterson Quartet & Trio
Paul Paterson Quartet
The Paul Paterson Quartet are:
Paul Paterson (Guitar) - Ross Baird (Guitar) - Dick Lee (Clarinet) - Charlotte Paterson (Double Bass)
Paul Paterson is an Edinburgh based guitarist who is widely recognised as one of Scotland's leading gypsy jazz players.
Accompanied by his spiritual and musical partner, Charlotte Paterson on double bass, the pair live out their adventures; dressing in vintage fashion and exploring Django Reinhardt's immense musical legacy. They are lucky enough to always attract the very best musicians to their various gypsy jazz ensembles.
Ross Baird is an extremely talented guitar player who has played alongside many top jazz artists.
Reed player extraordinaire Dick Lee is a living legend of the British jazz scene. He is such a highly sought after player, that it is probably easier to list the artists with whom Dick hasn't worked.
