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!”

“Southside Jazz Project is a community of musicians that enjoys the intersections of life.  We seek out the musical intersections between tradition and modernity, between straight-ahead jazz and Latin jazz, between instrumental and vocal jazz, and between jazz and popular music.  The line up for the band changes as life takes us in different directions.  But the community of musicians and the conversation between them is always there.  We look forward to spending an evening with you to share our love of music as conversation.”

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.

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).
