Paul Asaro

Expertly blending the elements of such great jazz piano traditions as the Harlem Stride of James. P. Johnson, Fats Waller, Dick Wellstood, and Ralph Sutton, the ragtime of Scott Joplin and Eubie Blake, and the New Orleans styles of Jelly Roll Morton, into his own two-handed creation and adding a unique and highly recognizeable vocal style, Paul Asaro has performed across the U.S., Canada, and Europe. He studied music at Illinois Wesleyan University before graduating from Columbia College in Chicago with post-graduate work at Roosevelt University. Paul has since performed extensively as a piano soloist in Jazz and Ragtime festivals, clubs, and theaters in New York, Chicago, New Orleans, Toronto and Montreal, Canada, Milwaukee, Superior and La Cross, Wisconsin, Los Angeles, San Diego and Sacramento, California, and Branson, Missouri as well as Switzerland and Hungary.
