This is a meeting to help us prepare to launch the Garden Of The Gods Concert. A small group of us will listen to sample recordings of the  new compositions from Garden of The Gods and and discuss the experience. Special snacks and famous lemonade will be provided by Lyn Harwell and his Create Cafe team.

Beautiful, Engaging & Inspiring

The music inspired by nature and the Garden Of The Gods Park in Colorado Springs was composed by budding composer Joseph Liberti who wrote and directed the music for our wonderful Ladder To The Moon project with Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center in 2015.

New Web Site, Seminars and More

The Art Of Jazz Announces a New Web Site, Fall Seminars and Concerts

Here’s the new look, at least for now. We were recently hacked and lost all of our content posted since 2012. The appearance will improve with time.

We are pleased to announce that our new seminar series, The Jazz Evolution will begin in October 2017 at Bemis School of Art at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center. Our focus for this series is to shine a light on new jazz. It will be a great time and place to learn about where jazz cam from, what’s happening now, and how to enjoy it the most. Registration will open soon and I will announce it.

In October we will  present The FluteDaddy Chamber Jazz Sextet in a premiere performance of Garden Of The Gods Suite, hip, original music inspired by nature.

I’ll keep you posted with more info and registration for these events soon.
