featuring: Steve Denny - piano Al Hood- trumpet Ken Walker - bass Paul Romaine - drums
Steve Denny teams up with three of Colorado's premiere musicians for a night of toe-tapping standards and captivating originals. Join Steve and friends along this musical journey as they explore the soulful, bluesy, hard-swinging tenants of the jazz idiom.
Steve Denny is an accomplished pianist, composer and educator living in New York City and was a finalist for the prestigious Jacksonville Jazz Piano Competition in 2012. He holds a BA in music from Loyola University Chicago, where he graduated Summa Cum Laude, and an MM in Jazz Studies from the University of Northern Colorado. While at UNC, he was a Graduate Assistant with the Jazz Studies Department and a member of UNC Jazz Lab Band I, one of the top collegiate big bands in the country. In 2008, UNC’s Lab I was awarded “Outstanding Achievement by a Collegiate Big Band” by Downbeat Magazine. Steve has performed with jazz greats Slide Hampton, Stefon Harris, Paul McKee, Paul Warburton, Ken Walker and Al Hood. He is also involved with many musical projects including his own trio, the B-side 5 and the Subterranean Jazz Quartet. In March 2012 the Steve Denny Trio celebrated the release of their inaugural recording project, Life in the Basement, out on the Dazzle Recordings label. The album has received airplay on jazz stations across the country; it features an eclectic array of Steven’s original compositions that bridge the gap between the swinging, spirited feel of familiar jazz standards and the emotive harmonies and complex textures of modern music. Mr. Denny maintains an active performing and teaching schedule throughout the greater Tri-State region.
