August 1: All In Jazz Trio
All In Jazz Trio (piano, upright bass, drums, and occasionally a guest artist) has been playing in public around Colorado Springs for the last ten years. This experienced classical jazz trio plays straight-ahead jazz standards of mostly swing, Latin, jazz waltz, ballad and light rock from the Great American Jazz Songbook. The Trio loves sharing timeless jazz standards with their audiences at community concerts and events supporting philanthropic organizations.
August 8: Academy Jazz Ensemble
The Academy Jazz Ensemble started in 2014 as a professional development course for music teachers in Academy School District 20 in Colorado Springs. After years of hard work and dedication, AJE is the tightest big band in Southern Colorado. Our mission is to explore and preserve the music of America’s original art form. The membership includes the finest jazz musicians in the Pikes Peak Region, many of whom are public school teachers. Our repertoire spans from rare and historical big band works to some of the newest original music for contemporary jazz bands. Our music book represents the passion and poise this ensemble brings to the stage. AJE is also a 501(c)(3) non-profit group with a goal to promote jazz through performance, education, and workshops. We believe that jazz has the power to transform the lives of young people, and that is why AJE holds open rehearsals, performances at schools, and routinely features young, talented, musicians with the band.
