Bryan Ferry at the Paramount Theater

Bryan Ferry
Paramount Theater
Denver, CO
August 3, 2017

Bryan Ferry creates dreamscapes. Dark, ethereal, eerie, brooding, a little bit spooky, but not too scary. You're floating in dreamland; maybe you're aware that you're dreaming; maybe not. But it's a really good dream and you know you don't want to leave ...

The Tedeschi Trucks juggernaut continues to snowball. The band's inaugural Denver concert in November 2011 was at the Fillmore Auditorium; capacity 3,000. The venue quickly shifted to an annual summer show at Red ...

Jean Luc Ponty Band
Boulder Theater
Boulder, Colorado
June 13, 2017

One thing we learned Tuesday night: Enigmatic Ocean (Atlantic, 1977), Jean Luc Ponty's fourth album for Atlantic Records, is his favorite. And why not? It made it to number one on the jazz charts in 1977. Plus, it's pretty good. ...

Thundercat
Bluebird Theater
Denver, CO
February 22, 2017

Thundercat brought the thunder. Bassist Stephen Bruner, also known as Thundercat, went low at the Bluebird Theater Wednesday night. We're talking bass that was deep and powerful enough to revive a heart attack victim. But Bruner and his band weren't simply about boisterous ...

Foundation of Funk
Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom
Denver
February 11, 2017

Foundation: the base upon which something is built. From houses to skyscrapers, foundations are essential. They must be solid, strong and most of all, immovable. A funk foundation? That, too, must be solid and strong. But immovable? No, quite the ...

George Benson
Botanic Gardens
Denver, CO
August 31, 2016

NEWS FLASH: George Benson's gone pop! OK, maybe that one's about 40 years late. I even knew that at the time it happened, having purchased the Breezin' album (Warner Brothers, 1976) when it first came out. But, over the years, through careful ...

David Grisman Sextet
Chautauqua Auditorium
Boulder, Colorado
August 12, 2016

Wag More, Bark Less. That's a popular bumper sticker, but it could also be a theme, a motto, a catch phrase or even the guiding philosophy for the David Grisman Sextet whenever it unleashes its very own “Dawg Music." Friday night ...

Peter Gabriel/Sting
Pepsi Center
Denver, CO
July 12, 2016

The field of mergers and acquisitions has been a profitable one for many capitalists over the last few decades. Indeed, profit is the driving force behind these transactions. Occasionally you'll hear some mumbling about economic efficiencies and synergies, but mainly it's about ...

Snarky Puppy
Ogden Theater
Denver, CO
May 24, 2016

The Snarky Puppy website describes the group as a “quasi-collective." Indeed, an organization that numbers perhaps as many as three dozen doesn't really fit the traditional definition of a “band." Thirty six members? That almost sounds like an orchestra. Well, they don't ...

Anderson Ponty Band at the Boulder Theater

Anderson Ponty Band
Boulder Theater
Boulder, CO
May 4, 2016

Some collaborations are inevitable; Ella and Louie, Tedeschi and Trucks, peanut butter and chocolate. Others are not so obvious; Plant and Krause, Wynton Marsalis and Willie Nelson, pineapple and pizza (OK, maybe some people will disagree on that last one). Sometimes ...
