This is Jazz News, a look at what’s news in jazz, music, and the arts.

Colorado native/saxophonist/educator Tia Fuller is busy these days.

The new release from drummer Matt Wilson’s quintet has Tia Fuller on alto sax, and Metro State University Denver jazz coordinator Dawn Clement on piano and voice. The album is called “Matt Wilson’s Good Trouble,” a title that recalls the plea of civil rights activist John Lewis to make good trouble.

Tia Fuller is also on the lineup at Freihofer’s Saratoga Springs, New York Jazz Festival this coming weekend. (SOURCES: Matt Wilson JazzSPAC)

The Sundance Institute is considering a new home for its January film festival, and The Hollywood Reporter writes that Boulder is a candidate. Sundance revealed a possible move for the 2027 event a few months ago. Founder Robert Redford is a CU alumnus, plus Sundance already has located its Directors Lab in Estes Park, and the proposal has a $1.5 million incentive from the state.

A summer travel idea if you’re planning to visit the Big Apple this summer…The Louis Armstrong House Museum in Queens was recently awarded the nation’s highest honor for significant community impact by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Pops lived in the home on 107th Street in Corona, Queens until his passing in 1971, and his wife Lucille stayed there until she passed away in 1983. She willed the house to the City of New York, and Queens College managed the physical property until the House became its entity in 2008.

The house displays thousands of photographs, instruments, and other audio and video memorabilia gathered from other private collections around the world, making the Armstrong Collection the largest musician archive in the world. The Museum also develops educational programs and commissions new works from contemporary artists to keep the Satchmo legacy alive. Details at Louis Armstrong House. (SOURCES: IMLS)

And get ready for a new Louis Armstrong release. “Louis in London” features 13 tracks captured in 1968 for the BBC, just weeks after “What a Wonderful World” topped the UK charts. Verve Records says the street date for the vinyl LP is July 12. (SOURCE: Blue Note/Louis in London)
