Director Paul Kozel at Avatar Studios with Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks

In August, Paul Kozel was in Studio A of Avatar Studios with Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks as they recorded two songs for the upcoming season of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire.  Vocalists for the two songs included David Johansen aka Buster Poindexter who will be playing Al Jolson in the series and cast member Stephen DeRosa who plays Eddie Cantor. Paul was working with Dave Davidson and Amber Edwards of Hudson West Productions on There’s a Future in the Past, a documentary on Vince Giordano.  Paul was the film production mixer on the set while Stewart Lerman was busy producing and recording the songs.  Stewart recently won a Grammy for his work on a compilation of music from Boardwalk Empire’s season one.  Pictured below are (left to right) Paul Kozel, Vince Giordano, Dave Davidson, and Stewart Lerman.
