Dan and Laurie Gatley will join me in a concert of my original songs. Most of what we play will be a preview of the music we plan to record for a new CD in the spring. Tutu Kane will play an opening set of beautiful traditional and contemporary Hawaiian music.


The making of BasicsThere’s An Elephant in My Room

With his new CD, “There’s An Elephant in My Room,” Paul Chasman celebrates his return to the Portland, Oregon area after a 16 year absence, reuniting with old friends and making some new ones along the way.  With 14 new songs that Paul made up all by himself, “Elephant” cuts a wide swath of topics and styles from a Dixieland band in the title tune to a bluegrass burner in “Frankie Said the ‘F’ Word,” to a doo-wop chorus accompanying  Paul’s ode to Sarah Palin.  Paul Chasman and the Awesome Portland Players have released a memorable CD showcasing Paul’s formidable songwriting, arranging, and guitar skills while reflecting the flavor of Portland’s vibrant music community.
