Big Band in Town

One of the Denver jazz scene’s favorite sons, saxophonist Fred Hess is in fine form on his new recording, Single Moment, with elegant backup from trumpeter Ron Miles Trumpet, reed genius John Gunther, guitarist Dale Bruning, bassist Ken Filiano and drummer Matt Wilson. But tonight, he’ll have an entire big band to whip into shape, making use of his stellar arranging skills, when the Fred Hess Big Band performs at Dazzle, 930 Lincoln Street. Don’t underestimate this ensemble: It’s a hand-picked who’s-who of local players gearing up to make their own recording early next year, and the admission tariff is only $10.

The band tunes up at 7 p.m.; for information, log on to www.dazzlejazz.com or call 303-839-5100.
Sun., Nov. 16, 7 p.m., 2008
