Jazz on 2nd Ave

Greensboro News & Record

On Thursday, the string of strong groups appearing in town continues with pianist Emmet Cohen and his trio on stage at Dazzle, 1512 Curtis, at 6 and 8:30 p.m. (303-839-5100).  The last time I saw Cohen was when he was here with bassist Christian McBride’s Trip Trio. This time he has his own group with Russell Hall on bass and Kyle Poole on drums. Hall holds down the bass chair on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert, while Poole is a regular on the New York scene and has worked with Wynton Marsalis.

Jazz on 2nd Ave was named Best Music Festival Outside of Denver! The tiny, picturesque city of Niwot, situated near Longmont and Erie in Boulder County, is as well known for Chief Niwot's Curse as for anything else: Legend has it that the chief puts a curse on any resident of the city who tries to relocate. Fortunately, those who stick around out of fear have a great little jazz festival to keep them occupied. Jazz on 2nd Avenue takes over the main strip in town, and last year's lineup included Liquid Soul and Jeff Coffin of the Dave Matthews Band.
