Georgann Low Quartet

georgann low

When we are open there’s Jazz! April 18th 7-10pm, La Cour, French Restaurant & Jazz Club, presents the Georgann Low Trio.

 

Georgann Low and Andrew Cox in Paris
Georgann will be performing mostly jazz but also featuring the divinely philosophical words of Thelonious Monk as well as inspired original Blues and French chansons.  Georgann has sung for diverse audiences including Paris hooligans, more or less refined chateau owners in southern France, patrons of the Dew Drop Inn on the Mississippi Delta, and in a chic little hotel in Hanoi, Vietnam.  One could almost say she’s been around the block.   Not the usual jazz singer!
Georgann Low  is an international artist and performer.  She is known for a unique blend of jazz, French chanson and her own earthy shuffles and Blues.
 “Artistic, soulful and romantic…she can  also be spontaneously hilarious!”
~Relix Magazine
Andrew Cox on piano
Michael Fitzmaurice on bass

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.

Rekha Ohal and Dexter Payne

Rekha Ohal

When we are open there’s Jazz! April 7th 7-10pm, La Cour, French Bistro & Jazz Club, presents Rekha Ohal & Dexter Payne.

They play a variety of music, ranging from Sinatra and Ella to Radiohead and Beck, in a jazz and pop format. A long standing favorite in the Denver scene, this trio is excited to be performing at La Cour for Jillyn Archuleta’s art opening.

Clarinetist Dexter Payne has performed from Tijuana to Paris, from Montreal to Buenos Aires. Highly ranked in Downbeat Magazine Readers Poll (2004 & ’06) and 2011 International Blues Challenge winner, Payne is equally at home playing Brazilian choro jazz (modern instrumental spectrum of musica brasileira – choro, samba & nordestina) as he is playing jazz and blues. And yes, you may also find him on the business end of an alto or bari sax, or even blues harp!

Paleolithic Jazz Quartet

Paleolithic Jazz Band

When we are open there’s Jazz! April 3rd  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

Looking for the best Sunday dinner & Jazz in Denver?  March 31st 7-10pm, La Cour, French Restaurant & Jazz Club, presents jazz duo: pianist Frédéric Desmoulins & bassist Michael Fitzmaurice.

Born in France into a musical family, Frédéric Desmoulins started playing the piano at a tender age… and still is!  His playing is influenced by the musicians he has had the good fortune to meet and listen to over the years.  Frederic spent most of the 80’s and 90’s in Paris, where he met and studied with pianists Numidia Vaillant and Aaron Bridgers. In Denver since 98 and with his singing spouse Julie Monley, music has stayed a family affair.  Tonight, Frédéric will be joined by Michael Fitzmaurice on bass.

Cj Nicolai & Larry Wegner

CJ Nicolai Larry Wegner

When we are open there’s Jazz! March 29th 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.

Al Ferguson Jazz Trio

AL FERGUSON

When we are open there’s Jazz!  March 28th  7-10pm, La Cour, French Restaurant & Jazz Club, presents The Al Ferguson Jazz Trio.

With a long history as both leader and sideman in Denver, guitarist AL FERGUSON has absorbed lessons from the great guitar stylists of the past fifty years. You’ll hear hints of Johnny Smith and Barney Kessel in his playing, plenty of Wes Montgomery and Joe Pass, blues influences of Billy Butler and Kenny Burrell, plus the spare sophistication of Jim Hall. Derivative? “Of course, aren’t we all,” says Al. “We find our own way by learning from the masters.” If you like classic jazz guitar, join us for food and drink as we welcome the AL FERGUSON TRIO at La Cour.

We believe Live Jazz should be as accessible as possible. As always, there is no cover charge.

Tom Virtue,  bass.
