May 21 was the day the music died at the old Dazzle. And on June 1, the new Dazzle at Baur’s (1512 Curtis) officially opens with the modern blues master Otis Taylor. In between, the new location has hosted several benefits as a kind of test run for the facility. On Thursday, the third of those benefits, one for KUVO, occurs with music starting at 5:45 p.m. from Ritmo Jazz Latino.

This week it’s Brazilian-born pianist/singer Eliane Elias who kicks off our musical calendar with the final sets of her two-night stand at Dazzle, 930 Lincoln, at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. on Thursday. Her latest CD is titled Dance of Time and, at Dazzle, she has a trio with Marc Johnson on bass and Rafael Barata on drums (303-839-5100).

As the countdown to the relocation of Dazzle to the historic Baur’s Building at 15th and Curtis continues, the stream of jazz flowing through the club at its Lincoln Street home remains something special with pianist Gerald Clayton’s trio, clarinetist Anat Cohen with Trio Brasileiro and pianist/singer Eliane Elias with her trio all on stage during the coming week.

Dazzle Jazz

On Thursday, one of the modern-day giants of the tenor saxophone, Joe Lovano, wraps up is two-night stand at Dazzle, 930 Lincoln. For this visit to Denver, Lovano, who has issued more discs on the Blue Note label than any other artist, has his Classic Quartet with him. That band has an international cast of younger players with Leo Genovese on piano, Peter Slavov on bass and Lamy Istrefi on drums. It is on stage at 6:30 and 8:30 p.m. (303-839-5100). 

DR Jazz Festival

It’s another week that starts and ends on a high musical note. On Thursday, to get things started, the master bassist Eddie Gómez spends his second night at Dazzle, 930 Lincoln, as part of the Girshevich Trio; and on Wednesday, the master saxophonist Joe Lovano wraps up the week with the first of his two nights at Dazzle in the company of his Classic Quartet.
