2021 Burlington Discover Jazz Festival

The Paul Asbell Quintet Virtual Event



Before their Saturday set on Church Street, The Paul Asbell Quintet presents a special virtual performance where they navigate the ins and outs of a virtual recording session. Weathering glitches, latency issues, mismatched technology, and the challenge of aligning five set ups from five different locations, the band find their groove and reward all the effort. This virtual show offers a behind-the-curtain look at a virtual recording session, and, of course, a bunch of excellent tunes!


  • Paul Asbell, guitar
  • Gabe Jarrett, drums
  • Tom Cleary, keys/accordion
  • Clyde Stats, bass
  • Chris Peterman, saxophone

This video will be available to view through the end of the festival.
