Seeing the name Dozier on the CD sleeve reminded me of the great Lamont Dozier, one third of Holland/Dozier/Holland, one of Motown’s legendary songwriting and production teams. Whether Paul of that ilk is any relation I know not, but there’s something going here of which Lamont would surely approve. This good value 12 track CD, checking in at over 61 minutes, is mainly instrumental and reminds me strongly of the work of John Mehler and Kenneth Nash, who had a similar jazz style back in the 1980s. Paul is a real one-man-band: he plays everything, wrote nearly everything (nine are his originals, and he arranged the other three) and contributes vocals on five. He has a good jazz guitar technique, the programming is never obvious, his vocals are accurate pretty much most of the time and whilst Rich Mullins fans might blanch at his arrangement of “Awesome God”, the majority of the material is nicely laid back and ideal for a late evening chill out. Worth considering.
