September 8,2008 …Last week saw a standout guest appearance, Live in the Mix, by highly respected saxophonist Pax Andrews. Jamming live with Brett Valentine, the pair set the room on fire with infectious grooves and sweet jazzy riffs providing the perfect ambience to get sexy on the dance-floor. If you missed out Pax returns to GOLD - live @ 10pm this Friday. Kylie Alexis, (Balcony Records)

"Paul has brought a lasting legacy to the young musicians in New South Wales. He is a gifted teacher with excellent motivational skills. Over the past 23 years, he has performed and recorded with James and I on some of Australia's greatest stages." John Morrison.
Perth Jazz Society.....

“Formerly from Sydney and now living in Perth for the last ten years, Pax (Paul) Andrews is one of those elegant saxophonists with virtuosic skill and outstanding musicality - particularly on all reed instruments including the bass clarinet. His life and music have been intrinsically linked and this performance will explore some of his journey through narrative excerpts - from his National Jazz Writing Award winning Book - I Hear a Rhapsody“
