Tom Harrell Quartet <p>“A supreme trumpet/flugelhorn player, Tom Harrell has an endless flow of bubbling, intricate ideas conveyed with an almost serene delivery. His equal ability as a formidable post-bop composer remains in full flower on this melodic, sharply conceived music. From dangerous tear-ups (Storm Approaching) to near abstract (Study in Sound) to conventional balladry (Roman Nights), Harrell is a master.” -Mojo Magazine<br /><br />Praised by Newsweek for his pure melodic genius, Tom Harrell is widely recognized as one of the most creative and dynamic jazz instrumentalists and composers of our time. While Harrell is a master of the jazz idiom, he constantly seeks new challenges and influences. He has written scores and arrangements for ballet and symphony and chamber orchestras. Even with a discography of over 280 recordings and a career that spans more than five decades, Harrell has managed to stay fresh and current as he continues to actively record and tour around the world. Harrell all but transcends musical labels. His music runs the gamut from the modal and melodic to uncommon modernisms that sonically broach the film soundtrack and/or the avant-garde. He is a frequent winner in DownBeat and JazzTimes magazines’ Critics and Readers Polls and a multiple Grammy nominee.</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

The Ken Walker Sextet <p>The Ken Walker Sextet is a little like the full moon, except the KWS is more dependable and swings harder. The full moon arcs gracefully across the sky. It’s nice, but does it make you snap your fingers? Walker and his band evoke (but don’t demand) that response.</p> <p>Ken Walker started playing upright bass when he was a student at Arkansas Tech University, where he received his bachelor of music education degree. He moved to Denver in late 1985 and in 1987 began a 12-year tenure as the house bassist at Denver’s legendary jazz club El Chapultepec that ended in 1998. Today, he plays regularly at DazzleJazz and is the Rocky Mountain region’s 1st-call jazz bassist. Walker has played with a veritable Who’s Who of jazz artists including: Eddie Harris, Hal Galper, Tom Harrell, John Abercrombie, Randy Brecker, Nat Adderley, Jimmy Witherspoon, Carl Fontana, Slide Hampton, Clark Terry, Joe Pass, Herb Ellis, Freddie Hubbard, Lew Soloff, Clifford Jordan, James Moody, Javon Jackson, Ray Bryant, Roy Hargrove, and many more. He has also performed at the Telluride, Jazz Aspen Snowmass and other festivals throughout the Western States, and he is currently on the faculty at the Lamont School of Music, where he teaches jazz bass to all jazz and commercial bass majors, coaching the Trad, Hard Bop and Latin Combos in addition to his studio.</p> <p>Ken Walker &#8211; bass<br />Jeff Jenkins &#8211; piano<br />Dave Corbus &#8211; guitar<br />Peter Sommer &#8211; saxophone<br />Al Hood &#8211; trumpet<br />Paul Romaine &#8211; drums</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Jean-Luc Davis “Tomorrow, Today” <p>From Jean-Luc:<br />“This is my first recording as a band leader and it features arrangements of the angsty 90’s Alt-Rock songs that were an important part of my teenage years. As an adolescent learning how to play Jazz in high school band I was also listening to groups like Nine Inch Nails and the Smashing Pumpkins. In my circle of friends it seemed a person had to choose between the path of worshiping the broody rock stars on MTV or being a Jazz ‘cool kid’ who freaked out about the latest Coltrane reissue. I eventually embraced Jazz because Denver’s vibrant Jazz community embraced me&#8211;but I’ve always loved the rock bands I listened to as a teen. It is in the spirit of this love that I humbly present this collection of arrangements and original compositions.”<br />Bassist Jean-Luc Davis is an active performer in the Denver area. In addition to leading his own group, Jean-Luc is a member of the Aakash Mittal Quartet, Carmen Sandim Sextet, Andy Hackbarth Band, Adam Revell and Essence Rider, and the Matt Fuller Group. Additionally, Jean-Luc has performed with Ron Miles, 9th and Lincoln Orchestra, Art Lande, Greg Harris, and Amir ElSaffar.</p> <p>A Colorado native, Jean-Luc Davis began playing bass in high school and was a student in the inaugural session of the Colorado Conservatory for the Jazz Arts (CCJA) where he studied with Paul Romaine, Greg Gisbert, John Gunther, and Eric Gunnison. In recent years he has become a regular teacher for CCJA. Jean-Luc studied classical bass performance at the University of Nebraska Lincoln. Currently, Jean-Luc Davis is one of the most in demand bassists in the Denver Metro Area and works with a handful of private students.</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Maya Spectra feat. Shane Endsley + Doors That Don’t <p>The Maya Spectra an Omnigenre band formed by singer, Janel Blanco, and brothers Donald and Julian Peña. The group’s artistic vision is bred by the culmination of their eclectic personal/musical backgrounds, and at the root of it all lies their desire to create a sound that is uniquely theirs juxtaposed with their resolution to remain in a constant flux of sonic reinvention.</p> <p>For their appearance at Dazzle there will be a special addition of Shane Endsley (Kneebody) on trumpet, and they will be featuring some of his original music.<br /><br />Doors That Don’t <br />A group collectively led by Tania Katz on vocals and synthesizer, and Dave Devine on Guitar, joined by drummer and multi-instrumentalist Zachary Antonio. The group was formed in 2018, and is currently working towards recording an album of original music to be released in the coming year. Doors That Don’t delivers their introspective and melodic sounds in both acoustic and electronic manners, toying with several genres including folk, rock, avant-grade, and electronic.<br />.<br />The group will be joined by several local talents on March 23rd to recreate the work of their favorite female-led groups in celebration of Women’s History Month.</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Carla Bley / Andy Sheppard / Steve Swallow <p>California-born Carla Bley once attributed her originality as a composer &#8211; she is self-taught &#8211; to blissful ignorance of “right” and “wrong” ways to write a song. Her early role models included Thelonious Monk, Erik Satie and Miles Davis, all of whom achieved much with few notes. However, Bley’s work also includes maximalist pieces such as the epic “chronotransduction” Escalator over the Hill, an album of Fancy Chamber Music, and many spirited pieces for big band. Nat Hentoff has said that “her scores for jazz big bands are matched only by those of Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus for yearning lyricism, explosive exultation and other expressions of the human condition”.<br /> <br />For forty years Bley has documented her music on WATT, the ECM-distributed sibling label she co-founded with Michael Mantler and today runs with Steve Swallow. So despite her long association with ECM, Trios (2013) marked Carla Bley’s first appearance on the label itself. In partnership with Andy Sheppard (tenor and soprano saxophones), Steve Swallow (bass) she revisited classic Bley compositions in an exceptional album recorded in Lugano in 2012. John Kelman (All About Jazz ) said of it: “Without muss or fuss, Bley, Swallow and Sheppard have, with Trios, created that most perfect of chamber records, filled with shrewd surprises and a delicate dramaturgy that reveals itself further with each and every listen.”<br /> <br />Carla Bley was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in 1972 for music composition. In 2009, she was awarded the German Jazz Trophy “A Life for Jazz”. She is the recipient of the 2015 NEA Jazz Masters Award.</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Blues Poet: John Sinclair & His Blues Scholars <p>Mr. Sinclair will be performing a rich program of evocative blues poetry on Thursday with Tom Worrell and the Blues Scholars, followed by a set of jazz poetry in the early set on Friday night. The stories John tells with his enthralling spoken word performances bring light, life and shape to legendary figures of jazz and blues like Monk, Trane and Roosevelt Sykes.</p> <p>John Sinclair is a legendary figure of the Detroit music, art, and literary scenes. Early in his career Sinclair managed Detroit’s most powerful ‘60s rock &amp; roll band, the MC5. Radical and revolutionary, both the MC5 and John Sinclair were driving forces in the political, social and cultural awakening of a generation of young Americans. A key chapter in Sinclair’s story begins when he was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for giving two joints to an undercover narcotics officer. Two years later, after many community protests in support of Sinclair, John Lennon performed his song “Free John Sinclair” at a star-studded concert rally in Ann Arbor. Three days later, Sinclair was released from prison when the Michigan Supreme Court ruled that the state’s marijuana statutes were unconstitutional. </p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Detroit Week: Thornetta Davis <p>Following John Sinclair’s jazz poetry on Friday night will be dynamic Detroit blues vocalist, Thornetta Davis. Crowned “Detroit’s Queen of the Blues” in 2015, Thornetta is a multi-talented International singer and songwriter. She is also the winner of over 30 Detroit Music Awards, including sweeps of both the 2017 and 2018 DMA’S. Thornetta has excited and wowed audiences all over the world. Her voice is strong, commanding, melodic and smooth. She tells her stories with an incredibly evocative delivery and leaves her audiences wanting more. For her Dazzle shows she will be backed by her own great band of Detroit Musicians. <br /> <br />She first gained attention in 1987 when she became back up singer for the Detroit soul band “Lamont Zodiac and The Love Signs”. Shortly after, the lead singer left the band and the name changed to “The Chisel Brothers featuring Thornetta Davis”. In 1996 Thornetta recorded her first solo album “Sunday Morning Music” on the Seattle based label “Sub Pop” which received a rave revue in the national Entertainment Weekly magazine. Her song “Cry” from that album was featured on the HBO hit “The Sopranos”.<br /> <br />Thornetta has opened for legendary blues and R&amp;B greats such as Ray Charles, Gladys Knight, Smokey Robinson, Etta James, Buddy Guy, Koko Taylor, Junior Wells, Lonnie Brooks, Johnnie Johnson and many more…her history is extensive and her performances are memorable…like the time she opened for Bonnie Raitt at Michigan’s Ann Arbor Blues &amp; Jazz festival in 1992. Bonnie asked Thornetta to join her and Katie Webster (queen of the swamp boogie) for an encore song which received a standing ovation.<br /> <br />In 1999 Thornetta brought down the house with her astounding performance at the “Lillith Fair” at Michigan’s Pine Knob Music Theatre hosted by Sarah Mclachlan…that same evening she attended the “Detroit Music Awards” where she proudly accepted 2 of the over 30 Music Awards that she has won over the last 20 years for “Best R&amp;B/ Blues vocalist” and “Best R&amp;B Group”.<br /> <br />In 2000 Thornetta opened the VH1 Vogue fashion awards at Madison Square Garden with Detroit phenomenon Kid Rock. New York’s star-studded event captured Detroit’s “Princess of the Blues” in all her glory! In 2001 Thornetta Davis is inducted into the Detroit Music Hall of Fame! Thornetta performed on Wednesday nights for 7 years at one of Detroit’s favorite live music venues “The Music Menu” located in Greektown in downtown Detroit until it’s closing in 2003. Three years before that final Wednesday, Thornetta recorded a live performance on one magical night at the “Menu” and called it “Thornetta Davis covered Live at the Music Menu”. This CD is a collection of Thornetta’s most requested cover tunes. <br /> <br />The magic comes through and touches you and makes you feel like you’re right there watching her as she takes you on a spiritual journey to the depths of her soul. “Thornetta Davis covered Live at the Music Menu” won “Best R&amp;B/ Blues Recording” at the Detroit Music Awards 2002.</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Jazz Poet: John Sinclair w/ Paul Romaine, Peter Sommer, & Mark Simon <p>Mr. Sinclair will be performing a rich program of evocative blues poetry on Thursday with Tom Worrell and the Blues Scholars, followed by a set of jazz poetry in the early set on Friday night. The stories John tells with his enthralling spoken word performances bring light, life and shape to legendary figures of jazz and blues like Monk, Trane and Roosevelt Sykes.</p> <p>John Sinclair is a legendary figure of the Detroit music, art, and literary scenes. Early in his career Sinclair managed Detroit’s most powerful ‘60s rock &amp; roll band, the MC5. Radical and revolutionary, both the MC5 and John Sinclair were driving forces in the political, social and cultural awakening of a generation of young Americans. A key chapter in Sinclair’s story begins when he was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison for giving two joints to an undercover narcotics officer. Two years later, after many community protests in support of Sinclair, John Lennon performed his song “Free John Sinclair” at a star-studded concert rally in Ann Arbor. Three days later, Sinclair was released from prison when the Michigan Supreme Court ruled that the state’s marijuana statutes were unconstitutional.</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Detroit Week: James Carter <p>“You have to be totally comfortable wherever,” Carter says. “I feel that music equals life, that’s the way my teacher always taught me. You just can’t go through life and experience it fully with a set of blinders on. I think there’s tremendous beauty in cross-pollinations of music and influences.” <br /> <br />In many ways, weaving together divergent impulses is at the heart of Carter’s music. Like the late tenor sax titan Ben Webster, he’s given to furious, high-velocity solos, but is just as likely to wax sentimental, using his big, bruising tone to tenderly caress a comely melody. In 2000, he released two albums simultaneously that amounted to an anti-manifesto, a proclamation that everything is fair game.<br /> <br />On Chasin’ the Gypsy, a voluptuous, lyrical session partly inspired by the timeless collaboration between Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli, he assembled a thrilling group with violinist Regina Carter and Brazilian guitarist Romero Lubambo, for a project born out of some sound check jamming with Lubambo and Brazilian percussionist Cyro Baptista during a tour with Kathleen Battle. The groove-laden Layin’ in the Cut, featuring James Blood Ulmer’s former rhythm section with electric bassist Jamaaladeen Tacuma and drummer Grant Calvin Weston, combines harmolodic freedom with a deep reservoir of funk, and developed out of a project inspired by another legendary guitarist, Jimi Hendrix.</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Rudy Royston “Flatbed Buggy” <p>Denver’s favorite hometown hero returns to the Dazzle stage leading a compact, almost chamber-like quintet featuring Gary Versace (accordion), John Ellis (woodwinds), Hank Roberts (cello) and Joe Martin (bass).</p> <p>Rudy Royston, first-call drummer with Bill Frisell, JD Allen, Dave Douglas and a host of other jazz greats, has honed a thoroughly engaging voice as a composer and bandleader with his compelling debut 303 (2014) and the raw and bracing trio follow-up Rise of Orion (2016). To these fine releases, both on Dave Douglas’ Greenleaf Music imprint, Royston now adds his third, Flatbed Buggy, rich in tonal contrast and mood yet steeped in the supple, enduring swing and groove that has driven his writing and playing from the start.<br />Of the album title, Royston says: “Flatbed buggies to me mean country, they mean home, they mean earth. We lived in Denver but my father lived in Texas, and I would spend time in the country there. I remember riding on this kind of flatbed buggy thing when I was a child. The whole feeling that brought me … it was comforting, it was outside, this bitter shrubbery smell, my friends are there, my family’s there. So it’s about that, but the album also has to do with time: a time in my life, the beginning of things, the process of them. The buggy moving along up a road represents the movement of time. And the titles on the album really have to do with time and motion.”</p> <p>While Flatbed Buggy presents far more than a succession of virtuosic solos, the passion and technical depth of the performances themselves — including standout improvisations from all involved — can’t go unremarked. John Ellis, among the great saxophonists of his generation, plays mainly bass clarinet throughout, achieving a remarkable sound and impact. Gary Versace, a top organist and pianist of our time, is equally stunning on accordion, bringing a reedy melodic sustain and full harmonic weight to the music. On the low strings, whether bowed or pizzicato, Hank Roberts and Joe Martin contribute a wealth of subtlety and energy as well, intersecting and digging in, never in the expected ways. And Royston, even though he lays back and never dominates here (he notes there’s only one drum solo on the record), still offers what amounts to a master class on the jazz drummer’s art.</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Through dedication and hard work, Chris has now received statewide and national musical acclaim &#8211; with All State Jazz Band, Essentially Ellington, the Telluride Jazz All Stars, National youngArts awards, Vail Jazz Workshop, and NYO Jazz being just a few of his accomplishments.

René Marie & Experiment in Truth <p>In a span of two decades, 11 recordings and countless stage performances, vocalist René Marie has cemented her reputation as not only a singer but also a composer, arranger, theatrical performer and teacher. Guided and tempered by powerful life lessons and rooted in jazz traditions laid down by Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington and other leading ladies of past generations, she borrows various elements of folk, R&amp;B and even classical and country to create a captivating hybrid style. Her body of work is musical, but it’s more than just music. It’s an exploration of the bright and dark corners of the human experience, and an affirmation of the power of the human spirit.<br /> <br />The newest installment in her ever-expanding body of work is Sound of Red, a CD set for release on Motéma in April 2016. It’s her first album of all-original material, an 11-song set that provides insightful glimpses into the many small but profound turning points that are part of an individual life. René’s clever songcraft and sensual vocal delivery make those personal moments not only meaningful but enlightening to a broad audience.<br /> <br />“I wanted to make a record that people could go back to again and again to excavate their emotions,” says René. “We cover things over every day. We have to in order to move through the day and move through our lives. We can’t always afford to be vulnerable to things like pain, loss, confusion, hurt and frustration. I want this record to provide some kind of architecture to provide support in those moments when our emotions are not necessarily happy ones.”</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Reginald R. Robinson &#8211; Original Compositions & Ragtime Piano <p>Self-taught genius of the keys, Reginald will perform on the Dazzle Steinway for this special evening of music. MAS Eclectic Concerts and Dazzle are pleased to bring Reginald from his home in Chicago to Denver for this rare solo recital. Before the terms Classical and Jazz were used to describe music, composers Jim Europe, Scott Joplin and other African American musicians created a unique form so special that it needed its own word to describe it &#8211; “Ragtime”. Reginald will share what this original form of music represents compared to the worlds of Classical and Jazz. In addition to impacting the music world, these composers broke social barriers and created an art form with lasting impact. Reginald continues this heritage bringing life to old favorites, unearthing little known compositions and stunning original music.<br /> <br />Mr. Robinson is a music historian, composer and performer without peer. Your perception of Ragtime will be expanded! This concert is for music lovers of all ages interested in an inspirational program of artistry, history and virtuosity in Denver’s downtown historic music venue Dazzle at Baur’s. We at MAS Eclectic concerts invite you to be inspired, share your love of music with friends and family and attend this rare visit to Denver by a most special musician.<br /> <br />“So here we have a youthful antiquarian in Reginald Robinson not only performing ragtime, but actually expanding the body of ragtime compositions by 20 original and quite appealing pieces. …Robinson is the embodiment of original intent. The music here, though his own, is dedicated to protecting and extending the classical beauty of the form with its structural formalities intact”.</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, SD America/North_Dakota/Center

Rob Mullins Trio &#8211; 35th Album Release Celebration <p>In his musical life, which includes 35 CDs as a leader, 25 years of working with the great flutist Hubert Laws, a countless number of gigs, and a full teaching schedule, pianist-keyboardist Rob Mullins has excelled in a variety of idioms, ranging from straight ahead jazz to funk, pop, fusion and studio work.<br /> <br />Rob keeps busy. He has written four influential music books: Jazz Piano Voicings, one for kids called Let’s Play Jazz, Blues Step By Step and The Jazz Piano Etudes (which is available from www.planetmullins.com), addressing issues in his works that had not been covered by others. He tours with Hubert Laws, plays in Southern California clubs on a regular basis, produces records, and enjoys the challenge of studio work. Rob Mullins is optimistic about the future. “I like to play different types of music in different genres, and I enjoy working with new people. I love the challenge of starting out with just a seed of an idea and developing it into something significant. In these divisive times, music<br />still has the ability to bring people together and I hope to continue on my path.” The Nearness Of You is a worthy addition to the pianist’s productive career.</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Peter Stoltzman’s Spiral Inward feat. John Ellis <p>Spiraling Inward is a new project of original modern jazz compositions that delve deep into emotional and conceptual territory, ranging far from the standard jazz songbook, but pointed straight at the heart of expressive musical dialogue. <br /> <br />As a trio, Stoltzman’s East Coast roots, Heller’s West Coast roots, and Teppa’s South American roots meld together in a distinctly creative jazz tapestry. They are joined by one of the worlds premier saxophonists, John Ellis, who adds his soulful virtuosity and New Orleans-rooted voice to bring this music to life. <br /> <br />The songs vary from extended compositions to brief motivic statements with broad improvisational freedom, but the overall theme is clear—this music is intended to reflect the journey that is both deeply personal and inextricably interpersonal, as we confront our commonalities and differences, our raw feelings and potentials, “spiraling inward.” <br /> <br />The day after their concert at Dazzle, the band will record a full length album at Mighty Fine Productions in Denver.</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Natalie Cressman & Ian Faquini <p>Trombonist and singer/songwriter Natalie Cressman and composer, guitarist, and singer Ian Faquini present their new duo project, drawing from impressionism, jazz, and the great Brazilian songwriting tradition to create a uniquely intimate collaboration.</p> <p>The duo’s global take on music is largely expressed through the distinct compositional voice of Faquini, with occasional lyrics penned by Cressman. Their original material features songs in three different languages and encompasses a vast spectrum of musical ground. With the warm instrumentation of acoustic guitar and trombone and two-part vocal harmonies hugging the Brazilian-accented Portuguese, Cressman &amp; Faquini weave their musical voices together to create a fully orchestrated sound befitting a much larger ensemble.</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Makaya McCraven <p>Makaya McCraven is a beat scientist. The cutting edge drummer, producer, and sonic collagist is a multi-talented force whose inventive process &amp; intuitive style of performance defy categorization.<br /> <br />Called “a sound visionary” (jazzinchicago.org) who is “not your everyday jazz drummer” (thewordisbond.com), McCraven brilliantly moves between genres and pushes the boundaries of jazz and rhythm to create forms of his own.<br /> <br />“You are listening to one incredible musician. His style and sound is unique, a heady, skillful, sophisticated and boldly uncompromising mix of jazz and hip hop…” (UK Vibe)<br /> <br />His breakthrough album In the Moment was released with International Anthem Recording Co. (IARC) in January of 2015 and quickly named “Album of the Week” on BBC 6 Radio by influential DJ Gilles Peterson. By the end of the year it was a “Best of 2015” selection for Los Angeles Times, Pop Matters, NPR Music’s Jazz Critics Poll, and Apple Music. In 2016, In The Moment was hailed by Turntable Lab as “one of the most important recordings to date in the modern Jazz world.” In The Moment was a dramatic statement by McCraven, where he debuted a unique brand of “organic beat music” that quickly launched him into the vanguard of not only Internationally-known jazz artists, but also a niche genre of next-wave composer-producers blurring the boundaries of jazz &amp; electronic music.<br /> <br />“While Teo Macero’s work with Miles [Davis] might seem the obvious reference point, In The Moment is closer in spirit to Madlib and J Dilla.” (WIRE Magazine)</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

David Weiss Sextet <p>Moving jazz forward has been David Weiss’s modus operandi ever since he appeared on the scene in the late eighties when he established himself in New York by touring and/or recording with the likes of Freddie Hubbard, Charles Tolliver, Billy Harper, Bobby Hutcherson, Slide Hampton, James Moody, Tom Harrell, Louis Hayes, Muhal Richard Abrams, and Billy Hart, among many others.</p> <p>Weiss was born and raised in Queens, New York and began taking piano lessons when he was ten years old. He added trumpet to his arsenal when he was 13. The music in his neighborhood was rock-n-roll and the favorites were the likes of Led Zepplin and Black Sabbath, which he embraced. His tastes soon evolved to more progressive rock like King Crimson and Gentle Giant and then to further out European rock groups like Magma, Area and Henry Cow. In high school, he began playing keyboards (and also a little trumpet through effects) in some local rock bands and right before leaving for college began to play in a band that eventually morphed into the group Material featuring future producers Bill Laswell and Michael Beinhorn. While in art school, Weiss became more exposed to free jazz and began to focus primarily on trumpet again. He also got the opportunity to perform with Fred Frith, Chris Cutler and Henry Kaiser. Weiss then left art school to attend Karl Berger’s Creative Music Studio studying with George Lewis, Jimmy Giuffre, Leo Smith, Pauline Oliveros, Gerry Hemmingway and John Zorn among many others. At the suggestion of Mr. Giuffre, Weiss sought out a more fully rounded music education and transferred to North Texas State University. Upon graduating, Weiss returned to New York and soon found work with Jaki Byard, Frank Foster and Jimmy Heath and began to study with fellow trumpeters Tommy Turrentine and Bill Hardman.. He also became a mainstay in New York’s thriving Salsa scene, playing with many of the legends of the music. He also played in many of the top Haitian and Soca bands in New York and toured extensively throughout the Carribean with these groups. Weiss also did a short stint with Ray Charles and assisted in scoring the music for the TV show “The Cosby Mysteries” starring Bill Cosby.</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

The Matt Skellenger Group Vitality Album Release Party <p>The Matt Skellenger group is excited to release their 4th studio album entitled Vitality on April 26th, 2019. This album features 9 new original tunes composed by Matt Skellenger. The music is a blend of jazz, world music, and fusion featuring the incredible musicians listed above playing an eclectic mix of instruments. The group is celebrating the release of the new album with a concert at Dazzle on Saturday April 27th at 7pm.<br />Electric bassist, Matt Skellenger, has always been an exception to the rules. By combining forward thinking creativity, progressive techniques and natural musicality, Skellenger displays a uniquely identifiable sound. Born and raised in Denver, CO., Matt has been composing, performing, and recording in the Front Range for 25 years.</p> <p>In 2002, he earned a B. A. in Music from Metropolitan State College of Denver where he studied with internationally renowned trumpeter Ron Miles. Skellenger’s fierce dedication to the electric bass led him to attend Steve Bailey and Victor Wooten’s Bass At the Beach Workshop in 2004, as well as six of Victor Wooten’s Bass Nature Camps from 2004-2015. There he had first hand experience studying with world class musicians including Victor Wooten, Steve Bailey and Chuck Rainey who are full time instructors at the camps and some of the most influential musicians to ever play the electric bass. At the 2005 BNC, Skellenger was awarded one of two scholarships to attend The Bass Collective in NYC for a week long intensive course. The versatility of Matt’s playing can be heard on music ranging from solo bass, jazz sextet and modern rock power trio to folk, Americana, funk, blues and pop groups. In 2003, Matt released his first solo bass album On My Way Home. In 2009, Parentheticals was released featuring Ron Miles, Dave Miller, and Andy Skellenger. The group released its second album, The Owls Are Not What They Seem , in 2013 adding Glenn Taylor on Pedal Steel Guitar. New Radio was released in 2014 adding Adam Bartczak on Trombone and Conch Shell. The newest album, Vitality, will be released on April 26th, 2019. The group has added Matt Reid on Trumpet, Cornet, and Flugelhorn for the newest release. In addition to leading his own group, Skellenger teaches music at Swallow Hill Music School, and is currently a member of The Grown A$$ Man Band.</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

His trio with Martin Nevin and Craig Weinrib has played together for ten years, releasing Sam’s debut album, Interludes, in 2014, and performing together on Martin’s debut album, Tenderness Is Silent, in 2017. In 2018, they released HARMONY, a collection of ambient blues meditations, garnering acclaim in the New York Times, The Wire Magazine, and Nextbop.com.<br /> <br />“Is it a brilliantly assembled suite of compositions for trio, or a loose, 30-minute improvisation? Either way, it’s low, dark and beautiful. And it feels like a guarantee that we’ll be talking about the pianist Sam Harris for a long time.”<br />&#8211; Giovanni Russonello writing about HARMONY, for New York Times’ “Best Jazz of 2018”<br /> <br />“Sam Harris has some different ideas about how a piano trio works. His new recording, HARMONY, documents them. I’m proud to have been one of his teachers. Go hear this.”<br />&#8211; Jason Moran<br /> <br />“ The group taps into something so basic and profound that I find it impossible to ignore and deeply satisfying to get lost within.”<br />&#8211; Peter Margasak<br /><br /></p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

The Four Freshmen <p>Bob Ferreira &#8211; bass vocal part, drums (Joined in 1992)<br />Jonathan Gaines &#8211; vocals 3rd part, trumpet (Joined in 2017)<br />Stein Malvey &#8211; vocals 2nd part, guitar (Joined in 2013)<br />Tommy Boynton &#8211; leas vocals, bass (Joined in 2015)<br /> <br />In 1948, four young men created a sound that forever changed the way vocal jazz harmony was heard and performed. Known as The Four Freshmen, the group started with two brothers, Don and Ross Barbour, their cousin Bob Flanigan, and friend Hal Kratzsch. With a soaring, true tenor in Bob Flanigan, the group created a sound that has endured for over 6 decades. Hal Kratzsch sang the bass part and played trumpet. He sang the bass part with a big sound, laying the foundation for the Barbour brothers to add their beautiful inner part stylings. Ross sang the 3rd part and played drums. Don sang the 2nd part and played guitar. Thus, the original Four Freshmen was born and began touring, playing bowling alleys and small clubs across the country. <br /><br /></p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Art Lande’s Flex Trio <p>Art Lande &#8211; piano<br />Gonzalo Teppa &#8211; bass<br />Dru Heller &#8211; drums<br /> <br />Flex is a band formed in 2017 that embodies flexibility, flexion of muscle and mind, the reflex of heart and mood, and the inflection of a wide range of musical influences. Featuring pianist Art Lande, bassist Gonzalo Teppa, and drummer Dru Heller, the group embraces the myriad of possible textures and colors available to this time-honored instrumentation. <br /> <br />The bass takes over the theme in an arco fashion, a drum solo appears at an unexpected moment, forms are suspended or changed at will, a quiet piece gets funky or becomes a 5/4 for salsa dance. Each band member is ready to bring his musical wishes to the table at any moment, and the group embraces and commits to the new direction. <br /> <br />The repertoire of the band includes compositions from its members, arrangements of jazz standards, open improvisations, and tunes called-out or arrived-at that the ensemble has never playing together before. So there is an atmosphere of innovation and tradition. <br /> <br />Come and listen, take the ride, and flex your sensual, personal and musical consciousness with us — we invite you to share in our band’s joyful, energetic spirit.</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Sam Keedy DSA Recital <p>Sam Keedy: Trombone<br />Alec Streete: Vibraphone/Keys<br />Alex Heffron: Guitar<br />Tony Golden: Bass<br />Braxton Kahn: Drums<br /> <br />The set would consist of a number of standards as well as some original works by Sam, which are heavily influenced by composers such as Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, and Bill Evans. The quintet holds a strong understanding in straight-ahead and contemporary jazz with some incorporations of electric instruments and more hip-hop oriented styles among the jazz tradition.<br /> <br />Born and raised in Greeley, CO by classical musicians, Sam Keedy has known music all his life. Picking up the trombone at age 12, Sam soon fostered a love for jazz and left Greeley in 2016 to finish his high school career at the prestigious Denver School of the Arts. Since then, he has studied with some of the leading voices in jazz, including Shane Endsley, Dave Liebman, Greg Gisbert, The Clayton Brothers, Terrell Stafford, and Wycliffe Gordon to name a few. Sam also recently toured Japan and performed at the Monterey Jazz Festival with the esteemed Next Generation Orchestra.</p> 1512 Curtis Street Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center
