The Jazz Corner

Happy Friday! Today we share a few iPhone images from a wonderful jazz and super club we visited on Hilton Head Island recently. It's a quaint place called The Jazz Corner, featuring upscale culinary treats and outstanding entertainment. The name fits perfectly as the club sits back in a corner of a modern commercial development.

Upon entry, you are welcomed by a host or hostess and your immediate impression will be how professional the staff is. After taking a few steps inside the place, you just know this is a high quality establishment and you will anticipate nothing but the best of everything. You will also not be disappointed.

We visited on a Wednesday evening (do make a reservation, the place fills quickly) and was seated at a front row table with the stage just a few feet away.

The shots in this post were all taken while seated at our table. One may wonder if sitting this close to the stage would be too close. Will the music be too loud and annoying?

Not a chance, this place has excellent acoustics and sound quality.

After ordering wine and dinner, which was a five-star affair, we were entertained by The Earl Williams Quartet. What a great show and experience. Earl Williams is a very funny and talented gentleman who interacted very nicely with the sold-out crowd. It was truly a night to remember.

Mr. Williams plays several instruments and provides comedic relief, often reminding you of Fred Sanford (Red Foxx). Yes, he is truly an all-around entertainer and great song and dance man.

Clarence Williams, son of Earl, performs a solo on his bass guitar.

In the background is Jimmy Charles on drums, quite a talent and the man that keeps everything in time and on beat. Unfortunately, I was unable to get a better shot of Jimmy without rudely blocking someone's view.

Lavon Stevens, an excellent pianist, was quite impressive with his ability to sing as well as play piano.

Lastly, we have Earl Williams, looking somewhat Hip-Hop, singing the blues. What an entertainer, he sings, dances, plays harmonica, saxophone, clarinet and provides comedy.

Bravo sir!

Overall, I rate The Jazz Corner as a 5-star experience and the owner and President, Bob, should be most proud of this wonderful establishment. If you are ever in Hilton Head, make this a place to visit for a memorable evening. Here is a list of the talent you can see there.

Thanks for visiting, and I wish you all a great weekend. :-)
