Performance

Paul Lyons and the Cuban piano player Eduardo Corzo often team up to play a tasty variety of classic Cuban songs, son, guaguanco, mambo, latin-jazz, a Michel Petrucciani tune, classic standards, Brazilian music, bossa-nova and funky originals. I play chromatic harmonica while Eduardo holds down the keys. We often bring in a rotating cast of drummers.

Music Arranging

Example of a score by Paul Lyons

Paul is available as an arranger. For many years, when the bands were a bit bigger than they are now, I wrote many arrangements for the Latin and rhythm and blues scene in San Francisco. These were primarily horn chart “take-downs” of classic tunes or songs that were popular in the day. I did over 250 of these types of arrangements, many professionally copied in ink on high quality paper. I also wrote many original arrangements and collaborated with various singers. Most of these songs are still being played and recorded today.

If you have a band and are in need of new material, want to purchase classic charts or want to collaborate on original material, you can contact me to discuss the project. I have freed up some time for writing projects.
