Each of these three nights features a different theme. Picture this: 18 musicians on stage to perform Dizzy’s Big Band songs.
Let us visually represent that for you:🎸🥁🎺🎺🎺🎺🎺🎷🎷🎷🎷🎷🎵🎵🎵🎵🎹🎹🎹 (there’s no trumpet emoji, so the music notes represent the trumpets).
The fabric of America is represented by who is performing: Black, white, Hispanic, young, old, and women. Students, staff, and alumni of the Colorado Conservatory for the Jazz Arts will be performing on stage. The lineups are inclusive because that was important to Dizzy and it’s important to Dazzle Denver.
John Lee, on bass, Tommy Campbell on drums, and Greg Gisbert continue to anchor this tribute to Dizzy’s Big Band music.
