Paul Wainwright formed his own group in 2004 after many years of touring and recording. "I always wanted to do funky, groove jazz since I was a kid. I was turned on by Weather Report, Spyro Gyra and the Crusaders. Grover Washington Jr and Stanley Turrentine were my heroes. This was my opportunity…"
In 2006 he released Paul Wainwright & SaxSafari-Plank Spankin' which garnered rave reviews and considerable rotation in numerous US markets. The follow up Midnight Café continued the momentum. His many recordings continue to receive world wide airplay.
