Featured Letter

Sad sax

I'd like to address an issue that has been apparent to me and my peers for quite some time: While the Indy covers some types of music quite well, the Indy covers Colorado Springs' jazz scene almost never.

There are many great musicians creating listenable and compelling jazz here. There are a few restaurants and bars that have been supporting this uniquely American music: Motif, Cucuru, Rico's, The Wild Goose and several others, some lost to history and the difficulty in running a business. And there is surely a decent audience who greatly appreciates the music and who shows up at all these venues to hear Springs jazz musicians.
