We know him as the man who plays 2 saxophones at the same time. The local blues legend here in Eugene. Here’s a little more about Mr. Paul Biondi.

Paul was born in Philadelphia in 1957. His older brother Fred, who is a professional jazz drummer, motivated Paul to study and perform music at a very young age – he first picked up a saxophone at the age of 8. Paul’s teacher and mentor was Robert “Boysie” Lowery, who taught and motivated players such as Clifford Brown, Ernie Watts, and many other jazz musicians on the east coast. While Paul was still in high school, he performed in jazz bands, studio sessions, and orchestras such as Valley Forge Music Fair. He has backed up such artists as Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, Mel Torme, Ella Fitzgerald, Barbra Streisand, Ray Charles, and Lena Horne. Before graduating from high school, he studied at Berklee School of Music in Boston. more…
