The coming weekend will be a good one for Denver jazz fans. Kenny Garrett and his band are scheduled for two shows at the Soiled Dove Underground on Thursday May 3 and Friday May 4. Then, on Saturday and Sunday, May 5 and 6, the Tierney Sutton Band plays two shows each night at Dazzle.
The last couple times Kenny Garrett came through Denver, he was playing with Chick Corea. In June 2010, he was part of the Freedom Band with Corea, Christian McBride and the then 85-year-old Roy Haynes. See review of that show here: http://www.kuvo.org/index.php?s=23781&item=20001
Before that, Garrett came through town as part of the 5 Peace Band featuring Corea, John McLaughlin, Christian McBride and Vinnie Colaiuta. See a review of that show from March 2009 here: http://www.kuvo.org/index.php?s=23781&item=20024
This weekend will be the Tierney Sutton Band’s second visit to Denver, the first being in December 2010. See a review of that show here: http://www.kuvo.org/index.php?s=23781&item=19990
