Al Ferguson Jazz Trio

AL FERGUSON

When we are open there’s Jazz!  February 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.

Linda Theus-Lee

Linda Theus-Lee’s musical journey has been on a continuum since a very young age. A native of Los Angeles, California and born into a musical family her musical roots started early by studying dance and theatre, and by watching her older siblings create music with original ideas and creative expressions. Theus-Lee, first love was dancing, but then as time moved on she found herself with the love of singing. She says “I’ve always had an affinity to sing and create at a young age.” She feels that her passion and style is a gift from God that needs to be embraced, and celebrated.

Having toured the world wherever her voice took her, she arrived in Denver 16 years ago. She has played throughout Denver, including performing the National Anthem at the Pepsi Center for the Denver Nuggets, her one woman show entitled “Rea’s Story” at the Crossroads Theatre, and even opened for Kenny “BabyFace” Edmonds when he performed at the Grant Amphitheater in Clement Park in Littleton, Colorado 2011.

Theus-Lee’s musical creativity lives in vocal Jazz, Blues, Musical Theatre and R&B. In addition she is also a very talented percussionist, and loves writing songs on her guitar. She loves family and friends and holds a Master of Social Science degree with emphasis in Education and Counseling from the University of Colorado Denver. Linda’s ongoing commitment is to empower students about how important they are, and about the importance of education in their lives!

This is the start of something special – Linda will have a residency here at La Cour, performing every third Thursday of the month!
