I lived in the Denver area in '77 thru '79. I heard Paul Warburton dozens of times. He is nothing short of great! He made a fantastic duo record with Dale Bruning some years back (with the aforementioned bass) which is definately worth the search. To my ear, he is clearly his own man, but with some Red Mitchell and Ray Brown influence.It is very exciting and valuable to have him posting on TalkBass.Who ever said he was the real-deal is exactly right!!
