Not too long ago, Nocturne celebrated its third anniversary, marking a significant landmark for the project created by team Mattson. The club, located at 1330 27th St., in the RiNo Arts District provides jazz Tuesday through Saturday on a regular basis in a very attractive environment – and for that a celebration is certainly in order. Along with an emphasis on food, Nocturne established the idea of extended residencies at the club for area-based musicians, providing a little different twist to the presentation of jazz in town.

During the 1990s, Jazz Aspen Snowmass partnered with the Thelonious Monk Institute to create a very special, summer jazz colony for very talented young students. In 1996, for example, that program brought a group of young players to Snowmass that included: drummers Ali Jackson and Alvester Garnett; trumpeters Duane Eubanks and Shane Endsley; Israeli guitarist Ofer Ganor; and three pianists – Jason Moran, Helen Sung and Orrin Evans

By now most jazz fans know that the National Endowment for the Arts 2018 Jazz Master are: guitarist Pat Metheny; pianist Joanne Brackeen; club owner/producer Todd Barkan; and Denver’s own Dianne Reeves. The tribute concert for the 2018 Jazz Masters occurs on April 16 from the Kennedy Center Concert Hall  in Washington DC and will be streamed live. Of course you don’t have to wait to hear a NEA Jazz Master because on Friday and Saturday, Dr. Lonnie Smith is in town at Dazzle, 1512 Curtis.


At the top of this week’s musical list, there’s pianist/composer/arranger Billy Childs who is stopping at Dazzle, 1512 Curtis, on Thursday. The LA-born Childs began recording with a series of discs released on Windham Hill from 1988 through 1993. And since that time, he has garnered four Grammy Awards (in the categories of arranging and composition).
