KUVO, Dazzle, Central Presents and Feyline have teamed up to bring a legendary funk and jam music lineup to the historic and mystical mountain town of Central City, Colorado.
Central Jazz is the revival of the Central City Jazz Festival, which ran continuously from 1977 through 1992 and is resurfacing on June 9th, 2018 with an unparalleled lineup. This year will feature four stages in various locations throughout the town.
There is unquestionably an art to the super jam. It can’t just be a bunch of talented musicians thrown onto one stage with a few hours of rehearsal, then go! There has to be context if not history, empathy between the players, and of course chemistry. Often times musicians of the same craft will have such different approaches that the live performance result is far from copacetic. One city that harbors an authentic understanding of musical collaboration is New Orleans.
Over the course of his 20-year career, drummer Stanton Moore has become known as one of the premier funk musicians of his generation. On his latest album Conversations, due April 15 from The Royal Potato Family, he moves in a slightly different direction, returning to his roots while reinventing his trademark sound.
