Dirty Dozen Brass Band

Homecoming Week | Norman Provizer's Jazz Notes

Feb 9, 2018
Westword

From 2012 to 2016, five artists from Denver or players who have a close connection to the city rose to the top spot in seven of the categories found in DownBeat magazine’s annual “Critic’s Poll.” The musicians are: alto saxophonist/soprano saxophonist/flautist Tia Fuller (who earned the top spot for all three instruments); drummer Rudy Royston; trumpeter Kirk Knuffke (who actually plays cornet); singer René Marie; and Hammond B-3 man Pat Bianchi.

On Sunday, February 11, at 4 p.m., KUVO’s performance series “On Stage” features a musical Mardi Gras, with performance recordings spanning 17 years!

An NPR tradition every New Year's Eve since the 1970s, 'Toast of the Nation' is festive jazz you can party to, all night long. Spirited, improvised, and swinging, each segment stops in a Blue Note venue throughout the country and the world! We'll hear sets from Buika, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Joshua Redman and Brad Meldau, pianist Fred Hersch and more.
