Today The Lizard Lounge presents a new venture, featuring a newly designed brunch menu and the music of renowned drummer Jean-marie Corrois and his quartet. For the French born Corrois, drumming has been a true love story. Inherently attracted as a child by a wide range of music, his current focus is more organic a blending of Jazz, Latin, African, Brazilian and Indian rhythms. Specific grooves and their influences in the history of music have brought hope, joy and courage to humanity despite centuries of human struggles. When Jean-marie performs, he is sharing his love for diversity, blending the cultural colors of original music with his audience. More than 20 years of performance and teaching in Europe, and now five years in the United States, he has had the opportunity to connect with a wide spectrum of world musicians.
"I recently had the very good fortune to attend a show by the JMC Quartet at the Jazz in the Square series in Roslindale, MA. These guys sound like they've been playing together for years! A terrific, tight
quartet, anchored by drummer Jean-marie Corrois, with bassist Keala Kaumeheiwa, pianist Gilson Schachnik and saxophonist Bill vint, set the tone for a solid night of jazz -paying tribute along the way to various composers and musicians. Swing, post bop, beautiful ballads and good old fashioned hard core jazz all come to mind when hearing the music. Seamless trading of solos, together with the overall musicianship of each player made for a memorable time. Go see these guys!"
