Arvada Center: "Bus Stop"

Feb 17, 2017

“It takes strong men and women to love… people strong enough inside themselves to love…without humiliation.”

Foundation: the base upon which something is built. From houses to skyscrapers, foundations are essential. They must be solid, strong and most of all, immovable. A funk foundation? That, too, must be solid and strong. But immovable? No, quite the opposite. A funk foundation supplies the movement, the locomotion, in a word: the groove.

Frank Ayala

If you had been planning on catching guitarist John Abercrombie’s Quartet at Dazzle on Friday and Saturday, you’ve discovered that the foursome’s appearance has been cancelled. But even if you take that event off the books, there’s still a lot of music to go around – most notably in the person of singer René Marie who is at Dazzle, 930 Lincoln, on Tuesday and Wednesday at 6 and 8 p.m. (303-839-5100). 

The Dale Bruning Trio with Mark Simon and Todd Reid will feature jazz standards and music from the Great American songbook. Bruning has enjoyed playing with the likes of Jim Hall, Erroll Garner, Dizzy Gillespie, Gene Bertoncini, Bill Frisell, and Michael Moore. He and his partner, Jude Hibler - owner of Jazz Link Enterprises- have produced and presented their signature concerts called The Timeless Music of Great Composers since 1995. They have produced 14 CDs with Dale as leader on their label, as well as publishing the three jazz guitar instruction books Dale has written.

Insight with John Ferrugia: Opioid Babies

Feb 14, 2017

As the nation and the state continue to deal with an opioid-abuse epidemic, a recent national study reveals an increase in babies suffering from neonatal abstinence syndrome at birth, especially those in rural places. Is Colorado following the national trend? Various counties and rural areas around the state have noted, anecdotally, that the problem is getting worse, and some are starting to step up to create solutions. We take a look at the numbers that are available in the state and examine what is working and what is not when it comes to the fight against opioid abuse.
