Paul Zaborac Paul Zaborac

Paul Zaborac is a versatile saxophonist, composer, and educator. Originally from the Des Moines, Iowa area, he seeks to explore and push the musical boundaries of the saxophone through performance and composition, and to share this knowledge through teaching.

Well versed in both classical and jazz saxophone, Paul brings a unique and diverse set of skills to his performances on the instrument. This unique combination of skills is displayed in the original compositions on his debut album Actualize (2012) where he explores how the saxophone can be used as an accompaniment instrument in improvised music. This original approach to the saxophone draws upon the many extended techniques available to the instrument and explores its performance potential in improvised music. In 2013 the Paul Zaborac Trio went on a tour of the American Midwest that included stops in Minneapolis/St. Paul, Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, and Des Moines, and featured Paul’s original compositions. He then formed the Paul Zaborac Quartet in 2014, which has released a live video recording of a performance in 2016 and the album Paul Zaborac Quartet: Live (2018). Paul has also had the opportunity to share the stage with notable jazz musicians such as Rufus Reid, John Von Ohlen, Everett Greene, Greg Gisbert, Stan Sulzmann, Chad Eby, Stockton Helbing, Paul McKee, and Michael Dease, and tour Costa Rica with the University of Colorado-Boulder Concert Jazz Ensemble.
