Paul Page (Ian Hunter’s Rant Band, John Cale)

As the anchor of Ian Hunter’s finest post-Mott the Hoople / Hunter-Ronson ensemble, The Rant Band, Paul Page tethers his bandleader’s half-century canon with pocket passages that exude a passion for soul, rhythm & blues, and old-school glam.  Prowling the bandstand with a weathered Fender P, Page’s improv on “All American Alien Boy” harmonically twists, swoops, and growls, quoting a lick or two from Jaco’s masterstroke. Mr. Page has backed legends aplenty including Dion, Lou Christie, John Cale, and Gary U.S. Bonds, and waxed sides with Martin’s Folly, among others.
