The Bottesini Project
The Bottesini Project, Colorado's premiere free improvisation ensemble, creates intricately woven, fully improvised compositions in a contemporary jazz-based setting. From this foundation, the music may take off to the fringes into a myriad of stylistic and sonic portals. The journey is the key - beautifully melodic, captivatingly rhythmic, Bottesini excels at harnessing the drama of experimental musical process into surprisingly accessible, powerful music for both fringe and mainstream audiences.

The Jazz Orchestra of the Springs was founded by composer and trumpeter Sean Schafer Hennessy. Its mission is to bring back the old in a time of the new, through fresh arrangements of old classics as well as original tunes written and arranged by the band members themselves. The Orchestra is lead by Hennessy, and features players as arrangers, composers and soloists. This performance will feature a select quintet from this group, performing arrangements by Hennessy as well as Cully Joyce.
