Paul Broadnax Quintet

August 23, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Ever-popular jazz vocalist, pianist, and Brownstore recording artist, Paul Broadnax comes to Maudslay this August to perform a special concert of standards with his wonderful ensemble. Known for his “King Thing” (Nat Cole’s singing and playing), and the powerful influence of Joe Williams, Paul has appeared with many nationally recognized jazz artists including such notables as Clark Terry, Joe Williams, Milt Hinton and Dorothy Donegan, Alan Dawson, Lionel Hampton, Cab Calloway, Jimmy Witherspoon, Diane Carrol, Donna Byrne and Rebecca Parris.

Paul Broadnax continues to perform around New England and beyond with various artists. For this performance at MAC, he will be joined by saxman Fred Haas and one of Newburyport’s favorite sons, drummer Les Harris, Jr. Twice nominated for the Boston Music Awards Jazz Singer of the Year, and chosen in 2003 as Musician of the Year by the Boston Musicians’ Association, Broadnax is a musical legend in our own time.

Aside from a magnificent pianist and accompanist, Paul is a gentleman, a credit to the profession, and a major force in the perpetuation of the craft of jazz. Those who appreciate talent will wonder where he’s been. – Clark Terry
