And with that, please mark your calendar for this great event in Denver . . .
LOST SOUL Jazz Combo is thrilled to host Denver-based, master tenor saxman, Mr. Keith Oxman, to share the stage at Chapultepec Too this month, and we cordially invite you to be a part of the fun!
Keith has recorded several great albums for the local and prestigious Capri record label, is a well-known performer in and around the Rocky Mountain Region, and has attained fans from around the world. He has served as the lead tenor man for the El Chapultepec house band, played with many major names such as Mark Diamond, Andy Weyl, Marc Sabatella, Jeff Jenkins, and many more, and enjoys regular airplay on jazz station KUVO 89.3 FM. In addition to his jazz career, Keith also inspires future artists by teaching music at East High School in Denver. It is a rare honor and a treat to have him accompany us!
JazzTimes Magazine has written of Keith as " ... an excellent improviser, with a fine sound, agile technique and sure harmonic sense. He also exhibits a thorough knowledge of the hard bop language and can swing like crazy."
The Jazz Network is exactly what the title suggests, a place where you get to mix and mingle with those who have not only an appreciation for Jazz but a forum to hear new up and coming artists as well. I've hooked up with so many of my old friends that I've lost contact with over the years here and it's been a great place to meet folk, appreciate good music and Musicianship. What an incredible idea!!
Divine: The Jazz Albums, 1954-1958 packs four CDs with Vaughan's music, recorded live or in the studio with bands big and small. Two live albums from Chicago nightclubs are standouts, partly when a performance threatens to slide off the rails.
Grady Tate began his jazz career as a much-celebrated drummer, backing such icons as Wes Montgomery, Ella Fitzgerald, and Quincy Jones. Tate has since traded in his skins for a microphone at center stage, where he delivers smooth and soulful baritone vocals. With pianist John di Martino, Tate sings "Everybody Loves My Baby" and "Where Do You Start."
He was a soulful reedman, an amazing talent scout for decades and a bandleader of one of the country's most popular acts. Born in 1913, Herman led "Thundering Herds" that were both big draws and well-respected by the likes of Igor Stravinsky. Here are five recordings which still sound fresh today.
