A very active player in New York’s vibrant Brazilian jazz scene, Paul was a member of the Terra Brasil, which featured pianist/composer Cidinho Teixeira and vocalist Vera Mara, both veterans of the great Gilberto Gil‘s band. He later co-led Brasil & Company with Ms. Mara, and they released a highly regarded CD as well.  He has performed in New York and Tokyo with the great Tango-jazz pianist and composer Pablo Zeigler (Astor Piazzola’s pianist) and is featured along with Stephon Harris on the live CD Tango meets Jazz. He recently returned to Tokyo to play at the Blue Note with vocalist Karrin Allison, performing music from her new Brazilian CD Imagina. Paul was featured on the soundtrack to the film Bossa Nova (2000) w/Amy Irving, and music by Deodato. He has also performed in great Brazilian ensembles with Paul Winter at his Winter Solstice concerts and in small groups.

Double bassist Josh Marcum has performed with numerous orchestras and ensembles at such noted venues as Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall, Carnegie Hall, Jazz at Lincoln Center, The Iridium, Mezzrow, Smoke, and Symphony Space, among others. At home in New York City, Josh works regularly in a duo with master guitarist Gene Bertoncini, and he has also performed alongside other jazz greats such as Bucky Pizzarelli, Les Paul, Donald Brown, Larry Fuller, Roni Ben-Hur, Roger Kellaway, Ralph Lalama, Ed Laub, Paul Meyers, and Bill Mobley.

Josh received his M.M. degree from the Mannes School of Music where he studied with legendary bassist and educator Orin O’Brien, and he completed his B.M. from the University of Tennessee in his hometown of Knoxville. Other notable teachers include bassists Michael Moore, Jordan Frazier, and Marji Danilow. As a strong supporter of music programs for children, Josh has worked regularly with the Inter School Orchestras of New York (ISO) as a strings coach for the organization’s Morningside and Carnegie Hill Orchestras.

Recording credits include the debut album by indie rock band Milagres and composer Joe Gianono’s Storyteller project. He has toured Japan twice: once as a guest musician, and once as the leader of his own trio. He performed and appeared in the art film Nummer Twaalf by Dutch artist Guido Van der Werve, which premiered at Art Basal and MoMa. He has also performed on national television and radio including Sirus XM’s broadcast of gospel artist Kim Burrell’s holiday special at Jazz at Lincoln Center. Josh lives on Manhattan’s Upper West Side and is the proud owner of a rescue hound named Maggie.
