In the midst of what has to be considered one of the strangest presidential elections in the nation’s history,  this week the U S A  celebrates its 240th birthday. And, if you want to take some time off from blowing out all of those candles, there are some musical outings to consider.

Since becoming a professional musician in the 1980s, Detroit’s Kenny Garret has always been proud to play music that not only pleases listeners, it also motivates his audience to groove, move and dance!

In what is historically regarded as one of the most significant Colorado landmarks, Denver City Park is  known for its vibrant and popular summer Jazz concert season. This year, the park celebrates its 30th anniversary of the Jazz Summer Concert series that derived from a tradition that is more than a century old for Denver City Park. The second concert in this summer’s series featured one of Denver’s most widely regarded female Jazz singers, Lannie Garrett.

Think of the events that provide the bookends for this week in music. The music week begins on Thursday when tenor saxophonist Joshua Redman wraps up his three-nights at Dazzle, 930 Lincoln, with sets at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. (303-839-5100). And the week in music ends on Wednesday when bassist John Patitucci completes the two-night, return visit by his Electric Guitar Quartet to Dazzle at 6 and 8 p.m.

On June 22nd we combined National Bike to Work Day with the "Eats & Beats" segment by having cycling nutritionist Dr. Allen Lim from Skratch Labs on "First Take with Lando and Chavis."

Colorado is one of the most accessible states in the union, says Rachel Stafford, with the Rocky Mountain ADA Center.  She joined the KUVO morning show "First Take with Lando and Chavis" from the National ADA Symposium in downtown Denver.

"We're (also) happy to report the City and County of Denver is top notch in terms of accessibility."

Earlier this year tenor saxophonist Joshua Redman launched his newest band, Still Dreaming, in Denver. That band which captures the spirit of the Old and New Dreams quartet that included Joshua’s dad, Dewey Redman, on saxophone, filled Dazzle for six sets over the three nights the band was there.

In a bag or in a box, summertime wine in Colorado's parks and outdoor concert venues do not involve glass bottles.  Carolyn Joy from Joy Wine & Spirits comes to the rescue with an array of varietals, vintages and accessories for the June edition of KUVO's Wine and Food Pairing on the morning show "First Take with Lando and Chavis."
