Cj Nicolai & Larry Wegner

Valentine's Day

When we are open there’s Jazz! Valentine’s Day February 14th  7-10pm, La Cour, French Restaurant & Jazz Club, presents jazz duo CJ Nicolai & Larry Wegner.

CJ Nicolai

Larry Wegner and I have been performing together nearly nine years now. We first met and started collaborating at Lannie’s Clocktower Cabaret, where we still take the stage on a regular basis. From those cabaret roots grew a fantastic creative partnership which has now evolved into our upcoming EP and album.

While many know Larry from his regular Thursday nights at the Clocktower, many also know him from his longtime tenure at the Brown Palace for tea, or from his days at the late Crown Social. He’s been making music and performing for decades and has all the flourish, polish, and panache you could hope for.

We share a deep appreciation of the Great American Songbook and of the music of decades past. In our performances, we love to deliver both the well-known-and-loved standards, and also the lesser known gems, some surprises, and other exciting things that I can’t tell you about just yet! Larry’s sensitive and inventive piano skills are the perfect vehicle for the vocals I love to deliver — inspired by, but never mimicking, Ella, Sarah, Billie, and the legends we all still sigh over.

Paleolithic Jazz Quartet

Paleolithic Jazz Band

When we are open there’s Jazz! February 5th  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 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.

Myra Warren Trio

Myra Warren

When we are open there’s Jazz! February 4th  7-10pm, La Cour, French Bistro & Jazz Club, presents  Myra Warren Trio.

Myra Warren’s singing venture began in early 1980’s when she was invited by renown saxophone player Billy Tolles and popular Denver organist Al “Hammond” Moore to do a gig with them at the Mall Exchange, which was located downtown on the corner of 16th & Lawrence Street. After that, Myra continued doing gigs with these two musicians and their various accompanists over the years. She stopped gigging for almost 10 years and then re-surfaced after an invite from Denver pianist and jazz historian, Purnell Steen, to sing at Dazzle Jazz. Myra sang that first Friday in January, 2011 and has been enjoying the gift of music, again, since then!
