When we are open there’s Jazz! April 9th 7-10pm, La Cour, French Bistro & Jazz Club, presents John and Katie Cain.

john and katie cain

A professional musician since he was 15 years old, Cain has watched the world go by from sitting behind a piano on the bandstand. In his new book- “Life’s A Good Gig”- (nominated for best non-fiction in the 2008 San Diego Book and Writers Awards) he shares his experiences and unique view of life. An astute observer of people and human nature he explores the mysteries of life and music in this well crafted memoir. At meet-the-author events he offers an entertaining and educational musical performance and speaks about topics in the book. He safely guides the audience from American music-(jazz, blues, country, standards from the “great American song book”) into the world of Latin music, with lots of laughs and surprises along the way.

Cain plays several musical instruments including the piano, guitar, bass fiddle, accordion, harmonica and Latin percussion. He is also an orchestrator, arranger, conductor and produces recordings for many other artists and musicians. For years Cain has been delighting audiences with his unique and versatile talent, singing in five languages and performing a vast, international repertoire. Cain is always fun and entertaining. He appears regularly at top San Diego venues like the world renown Hotel Del Coronado, Humphrey’s, Anthology, the Bahia Resort Hotel, the V Lounge in La Jolla, Ca. and Elario’s atop the beautiful Hotel La Jolla where countless famous names have performed. He performs songs in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, and French with a repertoire of Jazz, Blues, Latin, American Standards as well as his original compositions.

Loose Association Jazz Quartet!

loose association

When we are open there’s Jazz!  March 26th 7-10pm, La Cour, French Restaurant & Jazz Club, presents Loose Association!

Loose Association Doug Yager Michael Fitzmaurice Brian Mullins

Join Brian Mullin’s and his group Loose Association Jazz Quartet at La Cour where they perform their new vintage jazz, original and standard songs.  Brian Mullin’s (tenor guitar and vocals), Doug Yager (tenor and c-melody saxophone), Dave Willey (piano and accordion) and Mike Fitzmaurice (upright bass and vocals).

Loose Association draws on original compositions by band leader Brian Mullins that he describes as new vintage jazz.  The vintage element originates from multiple sources of inspiration. Brian and band members have a deep appreciation of the jazz standards and the composers who use chord progressions, overprinted by expressive melodies that can transport musicians and listeners to another place and time.  Another source of the vintage vibe comes from the band instrumentation- tenor guitar, piano or accordion, and the ‘mystery horn’, a 1920’s vintage C-melody saxophone, the type played on Frank Zappa’s album The Grand Wazoo. The “new” in vintage is partly from the world influences from Brian traveling and performing in Europe, Vietnam, Central America, and the U.S.  This experience is woven into each composition either deliberately or unintentionally to create a fresh, new-jazz, world music sound.

Many in the band are multi-instrumentalists and have acquired their chops in other trad-jazz, Celtic, prog-rock, Latin, acoustic, and classical groups.

Whether performing original tunes or jazz standards, one thing is certain when hearing and seeing Loose Association perform, it will be dynamic.  Brian Mullins (tenor guitar and vocals), Doug Yager (tenor and C-melody saxophones), Dave Willey (piano and accordion), Mike Fitzmaurice (upright bass and vocals).
