Dynamic Variation:

A Tribute to Curtis Fuller

Nov 13, 2021


On Saturday Nov. 13th the Gift of Jazz will be paying tribute to the great trombonist Curtis Fuller with a sextet featuring Paul McKee and Keith Oxman. One of the most iconic hard-bop musicians of the 60's, Fuller’s warm dark resonant tone and deep heartfelt inflection invited listeners to hang on every note. He was a member of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and played with countless legendary musicians throughout his career. Curtis left us on May 8th. His effect on the trajectory of jazz cannot be understated and his legacy lives on through his timeless music.

We hope you’ll join us in honoring his legacy at Dazzle at Baur's at 6PM on the final day of Denver Arts Week!
