SPOTLIGHT: Paul Dow – A lifetime of music
Montreal Jazz Performer | Feature
Jazz Musician Montreal
When you think jazz in Montreal, most people think about the Jazz Festival, which is an amazing event that has, in recent years, evolved more into a general music festival with a jazz flair.
Cherishing the vibrant jazz history in Montreal
But there is a long and vibrant jazz history in Montreal beyond the festival. In fact, it’s likely because of that history that the Jazz Fest exists today.
Although jazz may be taking a backseat in its own festival, the music is still very much alive and kicking throughout our city. There’s Biddle’s, Upstairs Jazz Bar, House of Jazz, Café Résonance and Modavie, to name just a few.
And, if you’re lucky enough, you may have heard the incredible music of renowned Montreal jazz musician, Paul Dow.
Listening to Paul play, it’s almost as if jazz runs through his veins. Paul started out on the piano at age 6 and was performing professionally by the time he was a teenager. He has intensely studied various forms of music, played countless concerts, festivals and events, and has played alongside an impressive list of musicians, including Charlie Biddle himself.
Today, Paul plays as a soloist and a duo, and leads the Paul Dow Trio and Quartet.
There is really nothing quite like live jazz to bring the perfect blend of sophistication and excitement to any event. Paul and his bands can be booked for concerts and festivals, or for events such as weddings (indoor or outdoor), conferences, corporate get togethers, or even anniversaries.
