Mr. Paul Midiri
Mr. Paul Midiri, along with his brother Joe, co-lead the 16 piece Midiri Brothers Orchestra as well as various small group ensembles. The Midiri Brothers Sextet performs jazz arrangements of standards, clasical music, as well as originals, many of them arranged by Paul.
Paul’s many instrumental talents lend a special versatility to the Midiri Brothers unique sound. His specialty is jazz vibraphone with the sextet. Paul’s love of the vibes, and xylophone has led him to arrange numerous pieces for the sextet to give these instruments a proper setting. His extended virtuosity includes playing trombone and drums with the sextet where his brush work is often featured.
Mr. Midiri can be heard performing with the sextet across the country in many jazz festivals including the Sun Valley Jazz Jubilee, Pismo Jubilee By The Sea, the Capital city Jazz Fest as well as performer/clinician for the Sacramento Traditional Jazz Camp.
“In The Garden”, a CD of Hymns in a jazz setting, is Paul’s first self-produced CD and has enjoyed considerable success, including an A+ rating from jazz reviewer Cam Miller. He can be heard playing vibes on all the Midiri Brothers Sextet CDs as well as trombone and drums on the Midiri Brothers’ “Finger Bustin” CD. He has been featured on two recent CDs with the Brooks Tegler Orchestra, one with Harry Salotti (featuring Mr. Salotti on the tuba), and many more. Along with his busy playing schedule Mr. Midiri enjoys teaching music both at his home and at Black Horse Music in Runnemede N.J.
