Kevin Lee is the music director at Dazzle – the main Denver jazz club – and has been responsible for bringing some amazing acts to town as well as providing opportunities to local musicians. Like the part couple of music directors at Dazzle, Steven Denny and Tyler Gilmore, Kevin is also a musician himself. I had never had the chance to hear him before, so I was excited to be there at Dazzle last night for his UCD senior recital. Interesting choices of tunes, nice arrangements, well played – it was a great night. Andy Sydow’s recital followed on the same program. I was not familiar with him, but it was nice to hear another new player. And having Steven Glenn on tuba was an unusual and welcome touch.
