Holidays and Jazz – could there be a more joyful mix?  Enjoy an evening of jazz standards and holiday favorites that will swing you into the season!

Irving Berlin, Mel Torme, Gene Autry, and Rogers and Hammerstein have given us a songbook of beloved Christmas gifts.  The chance to share their music and the joy it brings is one of the best things about the holidays.

Gregg Corbin was a former music student who had been singing first tenor in a Denver church choir for a few years when he happened into a jazz club one Friday at lunchtime … and discovered a whole new devotion.  The next week, the club owner hooked him up with the band, and he began developing his style as a jazz singer.  In the 9 years since then, Gregg has performed with many Denver area trios and quartets.   For this show, he’s joined by John Hayden on piano, Blake Eberhard on bass, and Dave Jackson on drums.
