With a huge sound, an amazingly flexible pocket, and a gift for adapting on the fly, Paris' presence in the center allows us to spend most of our time wrangling the chaos everywhere else. Handling the most counter-intuitive bass moments with apparent ease and the more conventional moments with character, precision, and a beautiful melodicism, he's the essence of an anchor and a professional's professional.
