The week in music begins with a visit by saxophonist Dick Oatts to Dazzle, 930 Lincoln, on Thursday at 7 and 9 p.m. (303-839-5100). Born in Des Moines, Iowa in 1953, Oatts headed for New York in 1977 and quickly became a part of the famed Thad Jones-Mel Lewis Orchestra. He was with the big band when it continued as the Mel Lewis Orchestra and then as the Vanguard Jazz Orchestra.

If you like the Hammond B-3 organ, then this week’s for you. For four straight nights, you can camp out at Dazzle, 930 Lincoln, and catch the B-3 sounds first from Tony Monaco on Saturday (at 7 and 9 p.m.) and Sunday (at 6 and 8 p.m.) and then from Dr. Lonnie Smith on Monday and Tuesday (at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m.). A Columbus, Ohio native, Monaco found a teacher and mentor in the legendary Jimmy Smith; and like Smith, Monaco fires up all of the keys on the Hammond B-3.

In recent years, Ron Miles has released two CDs with his all-star trio on Enja/Yellowbird. First, there was Quiver, followed in 2014 by Circuit Rider and both discs, featuring the sublime interplay among Miles on cornet, Bill Frisell on guitar and Brian Blade on drums, are truly something to behold. On Saturday and Sunday, this incredible trio returns to Dazzle, 930 Lincoln, with sounds you don’t want to miss.
