Paulson-Price Jazz Quintet to perform Feb. 15

Dr. John Paulson and Larry Price will bring a stellar jazz quintet to Ed’s NoName Bar in Winona to perform their own brand of contemporary original jazz Saturday, Feb. 15, from 8 to 11 p.m. The group includes SMU’s Paulson on sax and flute, and Price on piano as well as bassist Eric Graham, guitarist Scott Gerry and drummer Rich MacDonald.

As composers, Paulson and Price have collaborated on many projects over the last 25 years including two jazz CDs: “Mobley Street Blues” (2005) and “Tower Blues” (2002).  The Winona performance will highlight their best compositions in an evening of all original jazz. Their music reflects the diverse influences of many popular styles including swing, blues, ballads, Latin, funk and hip-hop. Ed’s Bar is located at the corner of 3rd and Franklin Streets, and there is no cover charge for this event.  For more information, visit or
