Denver is home to a startling array of home-grown jazz clubs. Dazzle Restaurant & Lounge is not the one with the most history or the one with the most novelty, but it is without question the one with the best jazz. The stage at Dazzle is routinely occupied by the genre's contemporary stars as well as its established legends. But there's more to this internationally recognized club than touring acts. It's also a great ally of the local scene, hosting regular jam sessions and album-release shows. We also have Dazzle's staff to thank for bringing guitar god Bill Frisell back for a performance at East High School — his alma mater.
