Paris Combo, the French quintet that blends gypsy jazz, art song, Middle Eastern tonalities and the odd bit of psychedelia, brings its eclectic sounds and quirky humor back to Seattle. Paris Combo may not play classical music. But it's quite the class act.

The quintet, which closes Town Hall's 2013-2014 Global Rhythms season on Friday, April 18, blends gypsy jazz, cabaret influences, art song, Middle Eastern tonalities and the odd bit of psychedelia in tunes that are quirky, melodic and instantly memorable.

Even if you don't speak French, it's easy to pick up on band members' maverick sensibility - and to hear what gifted musicians they are. READ THE FULL Seattle Times ARTICLE and see Paris Combo play at Town Hall Seattle Friday April 18th, 8pm.
