Michael Ami

is a jazz pianist/singer with a difference. A classical pianist and composer since age four, he performed his own works, along with those of the great composers, at University of Miami recitals when he was just eight years old. His improvisation and ear skills showed themselves early, causing his piano teacher great consternation as Michael improvised riffs on Beethoven and Kabalevsky sonatas instead of playing the pieces as written.

After earning a Boston Conservatory of Music degree in composition, with a concentration in orchestral and choir conducting, Michael’s extensive repertoire of around 1000 pop songs landed him as a piano bar entertainer on cruise ships. Since leaving the seafaring life, he has concentrated on jazz, incorporating his classical and pop heritage into his unique interpretation of jazz classics. This wild mix of styles is behind Sweet Street’s trademark “mad mash-ups,” in which the duo combines two, three and even four songs into one unforgettable experience.

When not at the piano, Michael enjoys technological pursuits, and is a well-published author of books and magazine articles in the electronics field, as well as an inventor and an avid amateur radio operator.

Kirk Anderson

Kirk Anderson has been playing music since he was 12.  His guitar and bass gigs span folk, gospel, R&R, funk & soul, and jazz, and his bands have opened concerts for Journey and Tower of Power.  Kirk has a a unique and eclectic musical voice that melds his own style of rhythm, soul and harmony and melody.

Paleolithic Jazz Quartet

When we are open there’s Jazz! February 6th  7-10pm, La Cour, French Restaurant & Jazz Club, presents Paleolithic Jazz Quartet.

The Paleolithic Jazz Quartet (P.J.Q.)is a musical collective of artists who love jazz and love to get together and share their musical thoughts with each other and the public. The core of that collective is Howard Slavin on guitar, Dave Thomas, trumpet, Brian Chain, bass, and Taylor Hamill, drums, but often friends and guests will join us and contribute to the melange. The name “Paleolithic Jazz Quartet” is a tongue-in-cheek tribute to both our longevity, but also our reverence for the history and traditions of jazz. Likewise, while the Modern Jazz Quartet was called the M.J.Q, in homage we call ourselves the P.J.Q.. While our backgrounds are diverse, ranging from the 1960’s rock & roll East Coast college circuit, to big bands, small groups and swing dance bands, we are each deeply rooted in the Denver jazz scene. We have been featuring the talents of a singer new to Denver. Earl Harper is a recent transplant from Hawaii. He is classically trained, having performed with the Houston Symphony Chorus, but Earl has beautiful jazz “chops” as well. Considering the addition of Earl’s tastes to the mix, during our performance you may hear a soulful spiritual, a show tune or two, a jazzy pop ballad, some originals from Dave or Howard, and a healthy serving of favorite treats from the Great American Song Book. We hope that you will sense and share with us our reverence and joy for the music, and most of all the beauty and fun of live music from people who love what they do
