Greetings, Jazz Fans! Ace Gillett’s Music Director John Olson here to let you know what we have cued up for your listening pleasure this week:
Wednesday, 11/14 – 7:30 to 11:00
We’re happy to welcome back Jenna McLean on vocals, accompanied by Jack Roben on guitar. This is the first of two nights in November that you’ll have an opportunity to hear this outstanding duo – they’ll be back on Wednesday, 11/28.
Thursday, 11/15 – 8:00 to Midnight
The Subterraneans are happy to welcome Gabriel Mervine on trumpet and flugelhorn. Gabriel is a huge part of the Denver jazz scene and spent many years playing and touring with the Motet. It’s always a fun night when he’s in town – he’ll be joined on Thursday by Tom Amend, Seth Lewis and John Olson.
Friday, 11/16– 8:00 to Midnight
The Subterraneans welcome Marc Schwartz on alto sax for his debut performance at Ace Gillett’s. Marc recently moved to Colorado to enter the Graduate Program at UNC. He’s sat in a few times at Ace, but this will be his first full night. Marc will be joined by Seth Lewis, Sopon Suwannakit and John Olson.
Saturday, 11/17 – 8:00 to Midnight
Ace Gillett’s will be featuring Jeff Jenkins on piano with Seth Lewis and John Olson. Jeff typically joins us at Ace a couple of times a month and it’s always a great night when he’s featured in a Trio setting.
Sunday, 11/18– 7:00 to 11:00
Fort Collins’ longtime favorite pianist Mark Sloniker joins us for his regular Sunday slot. Mark plays an eclectic collection of jazz standards, pop tunes and original compositions. He’s frequently joined by his wife Colleen and daughter Emma and vocals, as well as a variety of musical friends that sit in throughout the evening. Come see why Sunday nights are a long-running favorite at Ace Gillett’s!
Stay tuned for upcoming information on our New Year’s Eve Celebration and a special Ace Gillett’s Concert featuring the Dave King Trio on Thursday, 12/20!
As always, Thank You for supporting live jazz at Ace Gillett’s – I hope to see you there soon!
