“The mission of this jam is to educate and engage the Jazz loving community of Denver by creating a theme based jam session where musicians play specific arrangements from historic jazz recordings. Through a limitation of content, we hope to bring a greater sense of preparedness and fulfillment from a gathering of like-minded musicians. We welcome dedicated musicians of all skill levels to come celebrate this music with us in order to keep our collective community and musical standards evolving.”
The theme for the month of January is
A Year of Jazz Greats
As we approach the completion of a full year of the Dazzle Sessions in February, our final theme of the 12-month cycle will include our favorite selections from 2019.
The house band will pull from music composed or performed by Clifford Brown, Horace Silver, Sarah Vaughan, Thelonious Monk, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, Duke Ellington, Billy Strayhorn, and Cole Porter, followed by an open jam.
