Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

As clearly evidenced by their two previous releases, vibraphonist and pianist Greg Harris and his quintet have mastered the art of the groove. While Harris and company dig in on a few tracks, such as "Two Few Minutes Dive" and Blue Heron," on their latest effort, Glass Gold, they step outside the pocket and into more expansive territory on quite a few others, including the dreamy opener, "Northside Hunter," and the wistful "Turn the Sun," both of which feature supremely divine vocals from Venus Cruz, who sings on more than half of the songs and is a welcome addition to the previously instrumental unit. Glass Gold is just that: a collection of songs each worth their weight, yet reflective at the same time.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
