Gary Vandy Audio, 2014, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: R&B+Jazz
O’s Notes: In 2005 Paul Messina shifted his focus to saxophone after 40 years mastering the flute. He also plays keyboards and synthesizers. Though Messina has vast experience, Musical Bridges serves as his recording debut as a leader. 11 of the 13 songs are original smooth jazz compositions. There is a nice contribution from guitarist Mike Diliddo on “Wanna Be Like Mike”. We also enjoyed “Road Trip” and the bluesy “Tonight’s The Night”.
