Making jazz as accessible as possible and helping keep the Denver Jazz Scene ALIVE!
P*S*Q, Purnell Steen Quartet is comprised of some of the top musicians of this region. Purnell, a Denver native, started classical piano studies at age 4, and switched to Jazz Piano more than 40 years ago, due in large part to the urging of his legendary cousin, Charlie Burrell. Bassist Ron Bland is a First Call internationally known bassist, as are guitarist Ed Stephen, and drummer Kevin Smith. This fabulous foursome is committed to preserving Hard-Swing jazz that made 5 Points famous. They have performed with 5- Time Grammy Award winner Dianne Reeves; Earth, Wind, and Fire, Bill Frizell, Ron Miles and countless other top notch artists. The swingin’ style of the immortal Oscar Peterson Quartet and King Cole Trio have greatly influenced this hot group.
