The Lance Houston Jazz Quintet

Tamo Bar

Every Tuesday, we welcome Lance Houston and his talented jazz quartet to TAMO.

Lance Houston has performed internationally with his distinctive approach to jazz improvisation.  He has studied jazz with Jeff Stout, Bill Lowe, Lin Biviano and many others.  Many jazz listeners compare Lance Houston's smooth flugelhorn delivery as reminiscent of Freddie Hubbard and Woody Shaw.

TAMO offers convenient valet and self parking in the Seaport Garage and there is no cover charge.

Prohibition was intended to stifle vice - but instead, it nourished clubs run by organized crime and created a hot bed for jazz - where "The parties were bigger…the pace was faster…and the morals were looser" (F. Scott Fitzgerald).  Ken burns joins host Wendell Pierce to bring us the sound of the speakeasies.  Bix Beiderbecke, Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton and James P.
