As we begin to move towards the Fall, the music keeps on coming. During this week, for example, you can catch David Amram, along with singers Dee Dee Bridgewater, Kendra Shank and Katie Thiroux (who is also a strong bassist). Amram not only keeps the beat going on multiple instruments, he is also a living symbol of the Beat Generation. And on Wednesday, he's at Dazzle, 1512 Curtis, in a concert sponsored by MAS Eclectic at 7:30 p.m. (303-839-5100).

Dee Dee Bridgewater: Few entertainers have ever commanded such depth of artistry in every medium. Three-time Grammy-Award winner, Tony winner, and NEA Jazz Master Dee Dee Bridgewater is a sparkling ambassador for jazz. Dee Dee made her debut in 1970 as the lead vocalist for the band led by Thad Jones and Mel Lewis, and performed in concerts and on recordings with such giants as Sonny Rollins, Dizzy Gillespie, Dexter Gordon, and Max Roach. She has been working with jazz greats ever since.
