Join us for this benefit and tribute concert for Denver jazz staple Alan Hood.
On January 27. Al fell and hit his back and neck. He was instantly paralyzed from the neck down and was taken to the hospital to undergo his first cervical spinal surgery. The surgery was long and intense but it went well and he was able to recover some feeling in his shoulders, which is very promising. He has another thoracic surgery scheduled and he will be moved from the ICUA to the trauma center and eventually to rehab to undergo physical therapy. The future is uncertain at this time, but we do know it will be a long and intensive recovery.
Al is a longstanding member of the Denver jazz community, teaching trumpet at DU, co-leading the H2 Big Band and H2 Jazztet with Dave Hanson, and performing in a variety of other groups, including the Ken Walker Sextet, all over the Front Range. This concert is a celebration of his music featuring the H2 Jazztet and the rest of the H2 Big Band trumpet section. 100% of proceeds will be donated to his Go Fund Me campaign to support medical expenses.
