A special Friday Night Residency series featuring the musical legacy of the "Jazz Crusaders" hard bop pioneers (and later fusion pioneers as the "Crusaders") is performed by Pete Lewis and his Quintet. The Jazz Crusaders were influenced by many of the hard bop groups of that time period including Miles Davis, Art Blakey, and Horace Silver. They became the "Crusaders" in the period when jazz groups were experimenting with electronic instrumentation and funk/hip hop beats. They still stayed close to their roots of creative improvisation with well crafted tunes.

This special June series explores and celebrates the classic and contemporary soul-jazz repertoire of the great organ trios. Important and historic collaborations were forged in the 1960s between organists and guitarists, and several iconic guitarists such as Wes Montgomery, George Benson, and Pat Martino launched their recording careers in this format. This classic sound lived on through the acid jazz of the 1970s to the retro funk of the 90s.

Edinburgh Jazz Festival

This week in music clearly represents one of the great contributions that Dazzle, located at 1512 Curtis Street, has made to the Denver jazz scene. That contribution, to put it simply, is bringing bands led by noted, newer players to town, providing listeners with a chance to place their ears on the current pulse of the music without having to travel to New York.
