Making jazz as accessible as possible and helping keep the Denver Jazz Scene ALIVE!

Born in France into a musical family, Frédéric Desmoulins started playing the piano at a tender age… and still is!  His playing is influenced by the musicians he has had the good fortune to meet and listen to over the years.  Frederic spent most of the 80’s and 90’s in Paris, where he met and studied with pianists Numidia Vaillant and Aaron Bridgers. In Denver since 98 and with his singing spouse Julie Monley, music has stayed a family affair.  Tonight, Frédéric will be joined by Michael Fitzmaurice on bass and Kevin Smith on drums.

The Harry Drabkin Quartet –  presents the masters: John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, Joe Henderson, Charles Mingus, Chick Corea, Bill Evans and others.

Harry, a former Berklee faculty member, is solidly Coltrane (tenor and soprano sax), but also influenced by Dexter Gordon and other 20th century contemporaries. On alto, you’ll hear aspects of Charlie Mariano, one of the most influential musicians from the Boston – Berklee environment, who spent much of his later career in Europe. Although Harry put his horns away for a number of years to pursue a career in medicine, he’s back in force.

Linda Theus-Lee’s musical journey has been on a continuum since a very young age. A native of Los Angeles, California and born into a musical family her musical roots started early by studying dance and theatre, and by watching her older siblings create music with original ideas and creative expressions. Theus-Lee, first love was dancing, but then as time moved on she found herself with the love of singing. She says “I’ve always had an affinity to sing and create at a young age.” She feels that her passion and style is a gift from God that needs to be embraced, and celebrated.

Having toured the world wherever her voice took her, she arrived in Denver 16 years ago. She has played throughout Denver, including performing the National Anthem at the Pepsi Center for the Denver Nuggets, her one woman show entitled “Rea’s Story” at the Crossroads Theatre, and even opened for Kenny “BabyFace” Edmonds when he performed at the Grant Amphitheater in Clement Park in Littleton, Colorado 2011.

Theus-Lee’s musical creativity lives in vocal Jazz, Blues, Musical Theatre and R&B. In addition she is also a very talented percussionist, and loves writing songs on her guitar. She loves family and friends and holds a Master of Social Science degree with emphasis in Education and Counseling from the University of Colorado Denver. Linda’s ongoing commitment is to empower students about how important they are, and about the importance of education in their lives!
