About
Paul appeared in the Oscar-nominated film "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" where his hands play the piano as a double for Brad Pitt.

His style is an appealing lite jazz. Paul makes the analogy that his piano playing is like Frank Sinatra's vocals. His piano interpretations include songs written by:

* George Gershwin
* Duke Ellington
* Cole Porter
* Matt Dennis
* Oscar Hammerstein
* Jerome Kern
* Antonio Carlos Jobim
* and many others

The music is relaxing and is suitable for any occasion. Paul can accommodate your need for a duo, trio, quartet or a vocalist for your function. Also, if an acoustic piano is
unavailable, Paul will use his digital piano.

Listed below is only a partial song list. Why not listen to some of his arrangements to hear for yourself!

Paul was just a delight to work with, he communicated thoroughly before the event regarding set up and logistics and arrived earlier than needed. His piano playing was the absolute hit of the reception and set just the right tone that I was looking for. He played outdoors for a two hour evening reception and was very low maintenance. I would recommend to anyone, and will think about rebooking him next year. Thanks so much Paul!

Paul did a wonderful job performing at my mom's 91st birthday party. He arrived early to set up and even offered to stay while the guests were leaving. Paul's playing was absolutely delightful! Everyone at the party enjoyed the music and Paul. I would highly recommend Paul to anyone wanting a talented and professional performer.

Best of the Best! It just doesn't get any better! Paul was outstanding; he is a gifted piano player; a true gentleman; very professional. We hired him for our son's wedding rehearsal dinner. He was wonderful - he was set up and playing when the first guests arrived. He played all through the dinner . We received so many comments on his amazing music. Highly recommend.

My Husband and I arrived after the guest arrived and what a nice touch to my daughters wedding reception to have heard Paul playing in the background. He was a gentleman, and I a pleasure to work with. He played right up until the time we were seated and I can only hope I can plan another event in order to use his talent. Thank you Paul!!!

Paul Cohen played the keyboard at a dinner that I recently hosted for a medical society. Everyone loved his music, which was basically dinner listening music. I would definitely recommend him.

We were extremely happy to have had Paul perform at our event. Not only was he an exceptionally nice person, his performance lent an air of sophistication and elegance to the whole evening. He was very accomodating, making sure everything would be as we wanted. We have two more daughters, hopefully we'll have two more weddings, and two more opportunities to see Paul again!
