Paul West

Pianist/singer/composer Paul West entered the Seattle music scene in the middle 50's, appearing at Norm Bobrow's Colony with Broadway “Flower Drum Song” star Pat Suzuki. Through the 60's Paul held forth at The Door Coffeehouse, The Sorrento Hotel and the Riviera on Lake Union with bassists Kenny Greig, Don Rogers and Lee Phelps (returning later for another long stay when the Riviera became the Hungry Turtle).

In the 70's Paul formed the popular trio ‘BLT’ with Rolf Johnson and Gail Clements. In the early 80's, West worked in Seattle and Los Angeles with Mark Brown and Garnet Hundley in the trio ‘Surprise,’ highlighted by Jazz Alley and Bellevue Jazz Festival appearances backed by the Barney McClure/Chuck Deardorf/Mike McKinley trio.
