Kenny Garrett Quartet at Salle Pleyel

March 12th, 2012

Though the Salle Pleyel is a concert hall and not a jazz club Kenny Garrett and his quartet rocked the house last night!  And the love affair was mutual – originally planned to run 90 minutes and finish around 9:30 it was 10:20 before he reluctantly left the stage!  People were practically dancing in the aisles – which actually happened at last year’s Patti Smith concert (put that’s another story!).

While there are many clubs devoted to jazz in Paris this auditorium programs a fair amount of jazz, pop & rock and world music in addition to classical recitals and orchestra.  And since music is a universal language even travelers who don’t speak a word of French can partake during visits to Paris!
