Paul Hensby

My love for soul, funk, jazz and reggae began when I heard Wilson Pickett on a radio show in the late sixties. Until that breakthrough moment, I was hearing British pop which I then found insipid and unexciting. 

Within weeks I was listening to everything black America was producing - from the soul pop of Motown to the cool jazz of Miles.  And so it continues today...if it excites me and seduces me, well, I'm hooked and am delighted to share my passion with you.
