The Silent Auction and Everybody Wins are fun activities at Live at the Vineyards. A very dedicated team of volunteers and staff have been busy procuring items from the following individuals, businesses and organizations.

Mojito Records

Miami based,  supremely skilled saxophonist Ed Calle is one of So Florida’s best kept secrets, this despite being a seasoned veteran,  a highly respected music professor, a Latin Grammy® award winner, a five-time Grammy® nominee and perhaps the most recorded saxophonist ever with over 1,300 appearances in a wide variety of music genres. As impressive as his credentials may be, the best trait of Eduardo Calle is his playing! That’s is what makes him be in such high demand and so respected by his peers.

USA Today

In her 2012 memoir Natural Woman, songwriter/singer Carole King, who was born in 1942, remembers getting into the Village Vanguard in New York at the way-too-young age of 15. A she writes, “It was a propitious moment that expanded into a couple of hours of grace during which I witnessed two sets of jazz by players I didn’t know. The music was hot, cool, and mind-blowing.” Also when she was 15, the Brooklyn-raised tunesmith sold her first song. King’s career would keep on going but not so much in a direction influenced by jazz.

Among the delicacies featured at this year's Live at the Vineyards event on August 13 is a sweet-and-spicy offering from the new "unconventional" Chinese restaurant in the Lowry restaurant district, Lucky Cat.  "General Guard Chicken" featured natural orange flavors and a couple of pepper treatments: arbol and the southeast Asian chili relish sambal.  The recipe from Lucky Cat executive chef Troy Guard is posted below.

The Gift of Jazz Collective | July 15, 23, 30

Jul 15, 2016

The Gift of Jazz presents The Gift of Jazz Collective, a free summer concert series supported in part by The Next Stage Now. Performances will take place at The Galleria at Denver Performing Arts Complex from 3PM until 5 on July the 15th, 23rd, and 30th.

It took literally months for this interview to make on the air during the jazz morning show on KUVO, "First Take with Lando and Chavis."  I carried the book for weeks and weeks, wanting the perfect inspiration that would match the exploding creative potential within the pages of "The Steal Like An Artist Journal," the companion to the best-selling book by Austin Kleon ("a writer who draws").
