Allen resident and jazz artist Jim Shannon and the Falcon Music Quartet deliver a sizzling performance. Jim currently leads his own jazz group, Falcon Music, and he will be accompanied by James Gilyard, bass, Andrew Griffith, drums, and Karl Lampman, saxophone. Formerly a distinguished professor of music at Brookhaven College School of the Arts in Farmers Branch, Texas from 2000-2009, he taught jazz and classical guitar plus jazz improvisation. Jim's albums include Street Talk, Out of the Blue, and Fast Company. His second CD, Silent Voices received rave review from Cadence magazine: that described their sound as "Intense and melodic" as well as, "Bright and freewheeling and full of the bluesy accents that can't help but bring a smile to your face"
