Denver: Jazz

There are almost six hundred thousand people who call Denver home, and among them, many diverse ethnic communities who enrich the city’s music scene. Jazz in Denver is highly influenced by its multifarious population, and each neighborhood has a different sound to offer any given night of the week.
