Most of our listeners may recall that Steve Turre was our 2012 Live at the Vineyards’ headliner.  Many of those present still talk about Steve’s amazing performance that evening playing trombone and his beloved array of sea shells that he calls “the most ancient horns”.

Today on "First Take With Lando and Chavis," Bob Bows called in to discuss The Denver Center Theatre Company's presentation of "The Glass Menagerie."

Bows talks about the origins and the meanings of the play, but he also hits on the role the actors play in this monolog heavy vehicle. Regarding lead actor Aubrey Deeker who plays Tom, "This particular monolog that he delivers was just incandescent ... he just lit up the stage and its something to behold."  


Over the next seven days, two of the top five clarinetists on the scene, based on the annual DownBeat “Critics Poll,” will be in town.

Don Byron is a masterful player and composer who moved to town in 2015 to take a teaching position at Metropolitan State University Denver. The Pulitzer Prize finalist is the featured artist for the upcoming Gift of Jazz “Blind Tiger” series at La Cour, 1643 S. Broadway, on Sunday at 3 p.m. (

While in Colorado Cohen held classes at Colorado State University and the University of Northern Colorado.
