The Metrognome Jazz Quintet will be performing on three nights at the Denver Christkindl Market (http://www.DenverChristkindlMarket.com) in Denver's Skyline Park. Find them there in the food & entertainment tent on Friday, December 9; Sunday, December 11 and on Friday, December 16.
Fred Beisser, a board member of the German American Chamber of Commerce which presents the Denver Christkindl Market and also a library trustee, discovered Jake Alvarez and his former jazz combo playing in Elizabeth, Colorado. He liked their music so much that he hired the combo for a reception in the new Elizabeth branch library. This past summer Beisser recommended Jake and the Metrognomes to play at the Christkindl Market.
The Metrognomes generally perform songs by jazz greats like Thelonious Monk, Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, Horace Silver, Milt Jackson and John Coltrane. Jazz lovers will enjoy a variety of tunes during the bands evening at Dazzle, including Well, You Neednt, a true jazz standard, the jazz ballad In A Sentimental Mood, performed with a Latin twist, and bebop blues standard Billies Bounce, as well as Bags and Trane and Straight No Chaser. For the Christkindl Market they will also perform some Christmas music with a jazz sound. Be sure to enjoy them.
