Based in Boulder, CO, Ginga specializes in playing traditional music of Brazil. The common thread that connects us with our fans, our community, and each other is an intense love and passion for Brazilian music. The band has spent nearly 15 years bringing to life the spirited sense of community and the alegria inherent in the best Brazilian music. Through years of playing and studying many Brazilian styles (including samba, forró, MPB, bossa nova, chorinho, and Brazilian jazz), Ginga has evolved into one of the most versatile and exciting bands in the region.

Celebrating the release of his brand-new album Opus Reminiscence, genre-fusing pianist and composer Adam Bodine leads his band through an entertaining and dynamic mix of creative original music every Thursday night in July and August.  Adam’s song catalog is extensive, eclectic and embodies an optimum framework for his imaginative and often humorous personality to shine through his music.

Smoke Sessions Records

Bobby Watson is one of the most accomplished saxophonists and educators of the last 40 years, rightfully so, because Bobby was born and raised in one of the most fertile and important areas for jazz in the US, Kansas City. After graduating from the University of Miami in 1975, attending at the same time as Pat Metheny and Jaco Pastorious, he relocated to NY and rapidly became the music director of the prestigious Art Blakely and the Jazz Messengers, a position he held until 1981 when he left to form his own band, Horizon.

All About Jazz

Manuel Valera came to the USA  from Cuba as a saxophonist. But once in the US, Valera turned to the piano full time as a student at New York University. Beginning with his debut release in 2004, Forma Nueva, Valera established an attractive blend of Latin styles and post-bop jazz in his music with several different bands. At Dazzle on Thursday, he is in town with one of them – a trio that has Hans Glawischnig on bass and E.J. Strickland on drums.
