“Cottontail" | Stories of Standards

Oct 5, 2015; info from

In 1940, just as the stage was setting for the Second World War, Duke Ellington returned to the United States after a successful tour of Europe. Upon his return, he penned “Cottontail” and recorded it with his band on May 4, 1940.

Stephen Sondheim is widely viewed as the greatest living composer in American musical theater. "Send in the Clowns," from the show A Little Night Music, may be his most famous work — and yet you might not recognize the song as reimagined for solo piano by Ethan Iverson of the band The Bad Plus.

I Like It Like That: Favreau's "Chef" offers food, music, heart

Oct 1, 2015

As the film opens, the Wild Magnolias’ version of "Iko Iko/Brother John" is slowly pumping up the volume while the camera zooms in on close-ups of a chef’s hands expertly dicing up fennel fronds, zesting lemons, seasoning pots, and slicing up juicy fruit sections.  It’s mouth watering and it’s funky and you know something tasty is getting ready to happen in “Chef” (2014).

Singer as Perceived: New Billie Holiday Biography

Sep 30, 2015

With this book, “Billie Holiday: The Musician and the Myth,” John Szwed gives us an intelligent analysis of both the music of Billie Holiday and the life she and co-author William Dufty described in the memoir, “Lady Sings the Blues.” This is not “just another” Holiday biography, so expect serious unearthing of documented achievement in artistic settings; the accounts of poverty, prostitution, racism, and addiction are to be found elsewhere.

Sep 29, 2015

5280 Magazine claims Denver's Five Points has finally arrived after more than 30 years of revitalization efforts. What do you think?

AlFi Records

We usher in Autumn's first New Music Monday edition  with trumpets galore. One of the world's best trumpet players is Arturo Sandoval who releases his first CD for AlFi Records with a performance recorded Live at Yoshi's.  Sandoval is a multi-instrumentalist and as expected not only blows a mean trumpet, he plays plays piano, timbales and does some formidable scatting to boot.

Artist Share

There is much to admire about a group of musicians coming together to record a swingin’ session for a worthy cause, moreover,  what’s more impressive is that all the musicians involved donated their artistry.
