Playground Chamber Jazz Project Plays Billy the Kid
Tuesday, June 17, 7:00pm
The next edition of Eclectique Tuesdays will feature one of Denver's most daring groups, the Playground Chamber Jazz Project! This group was formed five years ago by NYC jazz composer Tyler Gilmore and the director of the Playground Ensemble, Conrad Kehn. They premiere and play new compositions that live in the cracks: fresh and energetic post-bop jazz, meditative ragas, and exciting genre mash-ups.
This adventurous, fun evening will feature a performance by DU jazz professor Lynn Baker's arrangement of Aaron Copland's ballet masterpiece, Billy the Kid. This reimagined look at the Copland comes loaded with Latin grooves, jazz rhythms, and harmonies—but with the beauty and drama of the original composition.
