This current period has shifted so many aspects of our lives. The ways we work. They ways we travel or don't travel. They ways we communicate. The internet, which has been continually transforming our lives, since its inception, has been an essential element in these changes that are taking place. Armed with the internet and its related components, humankind has been successfully, yet painfully able to endure the COVID-19 pandemic: a skurge which would have decimated more than our economy if it had appeared 30 years ago. Many of us are using social media, sending and sharing eblasts, participating in chatrooms and absorbing the thoughts of others produced in a array of podcasts.

 

Paul GiessPhound Sounds is a monthly, podcast featuring Philadelphia area musicians and their original music, the podcast where the theme song changes every episode! Musician Paul Giess talks to Philadelphia area musicians about the stories behind their music. Hear about their inspirations and music making processes. Paul decided to self produce this podcast, looking for solutions to help the local music scene connect with audiences around the city. The podcast features music on the podcast as well as conversation with the artists about the music. Phound Sounds releases a podcast on the 15th of each month. The first four featured artists were Mervin Toussaint, Erica Corbo, Monnette Sudler and Micah Graves. Upcoming episodes will include conversations with Mollie Rose and Tether.

 

Paul Giess is a Philadelphia-based trumpet player, composer, and educator. His musical practice is rooted in the jazz tradition, but his taste is adventurous as he looks for ways to bring new perspective to old ideas. Giess, who has worked closely with the Philadelphia Jazz Project has also performed in various venues in the Delaware Valley including, Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, the Free Library of Philadelphia, Ortlieb’s Lounge, Philadelphia Museum Of Art, The Planetarium At The Franklin Institute, Johnny Brenda's, Chris' Jazz Cafe, LaRose Cafe and more. Paul Giess is committed to community and music making as demonstrated in his role as educator, mentor  with young musians at the Philadelphia Clef Club of Jazz and Performing Arts and his creative work with people with developmental  disabilities at the Center for Creative Works.

 

Monnette Sudler

 

PJP caught up with trumpeter and Phound Sounds podcast creator, Paul Giess to discuss the project.

 

PJP: Can you briefly describe your artistic direction/philosophy?

 

Paul Giess: Phound Sounds podcast supports Philadelphia area musicians making original music.  A lot of these musicians have roots in jazz and blues, but we're covering a broad range of genres.  Phounds Sounds supports the local music scene by helping musicians connect with their audiences.  It'll be a great place to discover new music with a new episode once a month on the 15th.

 

Mervin Toussaint


PJP: Tell us about your most recent event and what inspired it?

 

Paul Giess: Our recent guest was guest is Mollie RoseMollie has spent a lot of time in New Orleans, I'm always curious about musicians with a connection to that city.  I've heard Mollie play straight ahead Jazz and she sounds wonderful. However, her solo projects have her own flavor and are equally as engaging. Plus she plays a five-string violin, which is unheard of.  So, I wanted to pick her brain.

Philly Jazz Quotes

On my first record with him, I used no notes, just sound... I never played as powerfully as I did with Sunny Murray... he plays pulse, not beats.
