The Paul English Jazz Quartet at The French Corner
uploaded this event on June 1, 2018
Houston's newest jazz venue serves up the phenomenal musicianship of four very talented cats who offer up classic jazz trio or quartet combinations, at times with equally talented and intriguing special guests. If you respond to the dynamic energy and lyricism that only comes from those who can reinvent music on the fly, then this is the place for you.
Live performances create a special kind of energy. These cats feed off each other. Their spontaneous interaction is captivating. There is depth and subtlety in every tune chosen. The first set is typically a "dinner set" with lots of the jazz standards you love to love. In the second set the energy level is kicked up a notch or two, and you might hear some original compositions from anyone on the bandstand. By the third set anything and everything might happen. You feel the energy ebb and flow and getting caught up in it is the point, and very possible, because this venue attracts a listening audience. The many tunes called on the spot offer impressive and spontaneous interactivity which can only happen with A-team level playing....
