Greg Osby: P. Mauriat

Drummer Louis Hayes and saxophonist Greg Osby are members of two different jazz generations. And this week, you can compare those generations when both players hit the area, working with a number of strong, area-based musicians. The Detroit-born drummer, who turned 79 this year, landed in New York as a teenager and quickly became a member of one of pianist Horace Silver’s classic quintets (with a frontline of trumpeter Blue Mitchell and saxophonist Junior Cook).

Kearney Middle School jazz band has performed at KUVO eight of the last nine years. Kearney Middle School students are given instruments to use free of charge. Band director Michael Snodgrass attended Kearney Middle School and Adams City High School. The Kearney Middle School Jazz Band will be joined by maestro Walter Barr on trumpet and saxophone and flute master Dave Thrush. Kearney Middle School is located in the garden district of Commerce City Colorado. Adams County School District 14 has a long history of supporting music and the arts.
