Dan Barrett, Itinerant Jazz Trombonist

Almost every jazz musician I know dreams about owning his or her own club. If I had my own place, I'd want it to be just like the Jazz Corner. It's one of the classiest, "grooviest" clubs in which I've had the pleasure of performing. (I'm still trying to figure out if it's a great jazz club that's also a first-class restaurant, or the other way around!)

Denny & Marilyn Brandon

We were delighted with our experience at The Jazz Corner. We were entertained and thrilled with the talents of The Earl Williams Quartet. Lavon's piano skills and Clarance's bass guitar skills were fabulous.

Kellie, Thank you for the Jazz experience of a lifetime. We really enjoyed ourselves. The food and show was great. I would like to know if you video the shows and how can we obtain a copy, if so? Also, kuddos to Earl, Lavon, C.W. and band. All of them are AWESOME! We would like to know if they have pictures that can be autographed? I can go on and on. That let's you further know that we had a blast. Again, thanks for everything!
