A quartet of Denver's jazz elite ( saxophonist Keith Oxman, guitarist Dave Corbus, bassist Ken Walker and drummer Todd Reid ) will be exploring Eddie Harris' legacy and musical ideas through their own lens Thursday nights through March & April.  An influential force on the jazz world for decades, tenor saxophonist Eddie Harris used his light and fluid sound to bring groundbreaking compositions such as “Listen Here”, “Freedom Jazz Dance”, and “Cold Duck Time" to the world.

Whether you are in Paris, St. Petersburg (the 2018 host city of International Jazz Day), Sydney (the 2019 host city for International Jazz Day) or Denver, April is the month to appreciate America’s great cultural contribution to the world. This past week, at the start of the month, you could have done just that here from listening to the 16-year old pianist/Hammond B-3 player Matthew Ridgeway to tuning your ears to the classic sound of 89-year old tenor saxophonist/composer Benny Golson.

The Labor Day weekend is at hand. And in Colorado that means it’s time for another Jazz Party. Launched by Dick Gibson in 1963, there’s been a Jazz Party in the state for more than a half-century, with only a short break when the Gibson event (that started in Aspen and moved through Vail, Colorado Springs and Denver) ended and a revived and revised Jazz Party emerged in Vail guided by Howard Stone. The 23rd edition of the Vail Jazz Party takes place this weekend starting with a Thursday night kickoff at Lionshead in Vail Square at 6 p.m.
