Dig this funky rendition of Gershwin’s classic tune, “Summertime”. Except this time, it’s summer in Hawaii and Michael Paulo’s got a heavy roster of Hawaiian jazz artists in tow. Recorded live at Jazz Minds Café, Honolulu.
Watching Michael jam with friends on stage was a blast. Mike was all over the place, dancing around and chatting up people in the audience—”Hey Steve! Sing ‘It’s Summertime’, c’mon!—and simply having a great time.
I don’t think Steve Lucas had the intention of singing at Michael Paulo’s Java and Jazz jam session. But Michael coaxed him to perform to everyone’s delight. Check it out:
It really makes a difference when the artists on stage are energetic, grooving with the music and living it up for another night. Like it was gonna be their last night jamming together.
Luckily for us, Michael Paulo plans on returning with more Java and Jazz sessions.
