The Dazzle Sessions hosted by Greg Gisbert & Jean-Luc Davis
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.
For the month of February the focus will be on the music of Clifford Brown. His music is suiting start to the concept behind this jam. While they are known to perform a good amount of original music, Clifford Brown & Max Roach are also known to have performed many of the popular songs of their time. In doing so, they created their own arrangements that in turn gave the music an individual trademark, and in some cases their arrangements became the definitive way to interpret the compositions.
Tunes will be drawn from:
