For over the three decades, Summit Jazz Foundation, a Denver-based non-profit organization, has been putting on shows with an emphasis on traditional, classic, New Orleans, swing and mainstream styles of jazz. From Friday, September 30 through Sunday, October 2, Summit Jazz is bringing acts like the Jim Cullum Jazz Band, the Wolverine Jazz Band, Titan Hot Seven and the Summit Jazz Allstars (Antti Sarpila, Jeff Barnhart, Randy Reinhart, Nikki Parrott and Danny Coots) for its annual weekend of jazz at the Red Lion Inn Denver Southeast. Weekend passes are $115 and patron passes are $215. For more information, visit the Summit Jazz website.
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.
