Howard Paul, President/CEO of Benedetto Guitars, Inc. readily acknowledges that he is fortunate to combine his vocation and avocation. A highly respected jazz guitarist who detoured along the way to study political science, serve in the military, and rise in corporate management, his enthusiasm for his company is infectious. Today, he strikes a delicate but exhausting balance between performance at jazz clubs and concert halls, lectures at universities and music schools, collaborations with artist/endorsers, and running the day-to-day business of manufacturing and sales at the 9,000SF Benedetto Guitars’ workshop located on the south side of Savannah, GA.
A Refreshing Twist of Contemporary Modernity...
“Guitarist Howard Paul seems to call up a host of influences, mixing a style that recalls the not-too-distant past of Jim Hall and Kenny Burrell (and sometimes
Wes Montgomery) marked up with a refreshing twist of contemporary modernity that merely suggests Pat Metheny. If rock and R&B or any of its storied
guitarists have ever influenced Howard Paul, he surely doesn’t reveal it in his playing. But that’s not to say he’s old fashioned. Paul is driven by
the melody and he’s as much a catalyst for James as he is someone who knows how to charm with guile when it’s his turn in the spotlight – a glow that
would be set on the moodiest setting available."
