Album Notes
Performance Notes
My second Compact Disc project is a very special collaboration. The inspiration was coupled with finally having the opportunity to record with my friend, pianist and intuitive arranger Jay Fluellen. Jay has the gift of combining superb
technical pianistic skill with sensitive and heartfelt musical artistry. Glenn Ferracone, recording engineer and co-producer, has been my very important second set of ears. I am pleased to share the expertise he displayed ,once again, in the retro-style “live”ambiance. A“live concert recording”experience is risky and yet for me most rewarding.

The title song was sent to me by my former voice student, Benj Pasek. “Part of a Painting" introduces an artist fresh from a sabbatical in Athens. On his way home to a lady in Pittsburgh, he has discovered peace and beauty. Describing his
visit to the Grecian castle in vivid detail and how he has subsequently found his way, help promises to paint a vivid portrait for his love.”

The selections from this disc explore the genres of romantic ballades, light jazz and musical theater. I would classify my
style for this project as “Popera,” a fusion of classically trained singing with popular music. Thanks to Toni Marie
Walton,my talented CD cover artist; Tara Robertson, portrait photographer; Jukabiea Barlow,flugelhorn; Justin Binek; Meg Boscov, Annie Sciolla and my private voice students past and present. A special thanks to Dr. Walter Weaver, my first voice teacher who inspired my passion for singing; my loving and supportive wife Mary Elizabeth and family;
Alexander,Timothy and Kathryn, who will always be the most important part of my paintings.

Together, Adkins and Fluellen provide a nice program. It is perfect for a relaxing evening with a glass of fine wine - Adkins' voice wafting over one with a sweet freedom and the confident support of Fluellen.

"Part of a Painting" CD review
"If music is the food of love, then this record is a hearty meal. Paul Adkins puts his polished voice to the service of ardent statements of love and devotion. No equivocation here: love itself is subject and object, the world, the only world worth inhabiting _ and singing about."
