Paul Grabowsky

Paul Grabowsky, the Australian pianist and composer, talks to Tommy Pearson about his multi-faceted career. Grabowsky is perhaps best known for his work in jazz and alongside his successful career as jazz soloist and collaborator he has also worked in television (in music and as an executive) and film and has recently been appointed artistic director of the Adelaide Festival of Arts. In this interview, Grabowsky talks about how jazz came into his life, how he started in film and television music, his work as a session player for Jerry Goldsmith and eventually stepping into Goldsmith's shoes as the regular composer for old friend, director Fred Schepisi (Last Orders, Empire Falls). He also talks about working on the Michael Caine boxing drama, Shiner and outlines the Australian film industry and its composers.
