Hi folks. Paul here. I'm a jazz guitarist from North Carolina. I started playing in 1989, and got into jazz three years later. I'm playing with a trio called Blue Concept, and sometimes book impromptu trios under the name The Paul Bomar Trio. Anther project I'm heavily involved with is the F.O. Finch Quartet. I also sit in with other groups in the area, as well as do session work. I'd love to meet more jazz people around the world, so drop me a line anytime! Thanks...

The Jazz Network is exactly what the title suggests, a place where you get to mix and mingle with those who have not only an appreciation for Jazz but a forum to hear new up and coming artists as well. I've hooked up with so many of my old friends that I've lost contact with over the years here and it's been a great place to meet folk, appreciate good music and Musicianship. What an incredible idea!!
