Paul Jolly is a saxophonist, clarinettist and flutist working within the fields of contemporary improvised since 1969, when he joined the iconic People Band with whom he still performs.

Currently he is involved with the Monk influenced band SNC, his own quartet ‘PJQ’ and the experimental band House of Five. Projects include a duo with the poet Paula Rae Gibson, a duo with pianist Mike Adcock, and with Ben Higham’s large ensemble The Brass Monkeys.

His main focus recently has been with the contemporary Italian group Sothiac, with whom he co-produced the critically acclaimed short film Superluna which showcased live at the 2021 Venice Biennale.

His love of working with dancers is continued with occasional performances with the award winning contemporary dance group House of Absolute, where he first met and performed with cellist Simon McCorry, and with the UK based German dancer Petra Haller.
