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.

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."

Orvest Law III,

Comic Books grew up on the rough side of town.  The children of immigrants, Comic Books tried to lash on to the fables of yesteryear and the myths of the ages to get some credibility.  But nobody gave them that kind of respect.  They were considered eye-candy, the equivalent of the boob tube - mindless entertainment and gratuitous violence.  Then Comic Books met Hollywood, and sparks flew.  The romance was fast and furious.  The baby: pop culture.

Art Scene: Megan Mitchell ceramics at Plinth

Jun 3, 2016

This month we welcome Megan Mitchell to Denver with her exhibition of ceramics "Border Drawings," through July at the wonderful Plinth Gallery (3520 Brighton Blvd., Denver, CO 80216).

"I discovered that all these exciting things going on in ceramics are about a lot more than throwing pots," said Mitchell.  She describes the nuances of gas-fired kilns and wood-fired kilns in the audio.

Other gallery events of note on this first Friday in June: 


Wine tasting and pour, live music by Monty Alexander and the Harlem-Kingston Express, gourmet feast, dance & auction.
