Next Generation Spotlight: Impulse
Impulse is a jazz quintet comprised of award winning musicians from Denver School of the Arts. Trombonist Sam Keedy, vibraphonist Alec Streete, bassist Tony Golden, drummer Aleks Girshevich, and saxophonist Chris Ferrari are long-standing members of the Colorado Conservatory for the Jazz Arts and DSA’s Jazz Workshop Orchestra I, regarded as one of the top high school jazz ensembles in the country. Additionally, they all have become some of the most active young jazz musicians in the Denver jazz scene and regularly perform throughout the metro area. Impulse strives to encapsulate the sounds of the post-bop jazz era during the 60’s, paying tribute to the influential artists that helped shaped jazz into what it is today, while maintaining a unique and modern interpretation of the music.
