Vlad Girshevich Trio

All day

Vlad Girshevich Trio feat. Kevin Matthews on drums and Bill McCrossen on bass

Vlad Girshevich, started his formal music training at The Uspenski School of Music in Uzbekistan and spent 11 blistering years studying classical music there. When he started experimenting with jazz in the 11th grade, his instructors gave him a hard time for being too creative with “free” interpretations. Vlad and his family eventually emigrated to the United States in the mid-90’s. His first gigs were in Boulder with the Nina Storey Band. Herbie Hancock heard Vlad playing at an event in Aspen and subsequently invited him to participate in the Thelonious Monk Institute at Jazz Aspen/Snowmass.

Vlad is now a Denver resident and a part of the scene playing the 5 Points Jazz Festival, The Santa Fe Jazz Festival, Vail Jazz Festival, and Windham Chamber Festival amongstothers . He has performed with Bob Berg, Stanley Jordan, Ernie Watts, Karen Briggs, Jerry Gonzales, Arturo Sandoval, and Horacio “El Negro” Hernandez. Vlad and his son (drummer Aleks Girshevich), recently recorded and released a record featuring legendary bassist Eddie Gomez called “Algorithmic Society”.

All day

Peter Sommer: saxophone, Greg Gisbert: trumpet, Eric Gunnison: piano, Patrick McDevitt: bass, Alejandro Castano: drums

Peter Sommer has contributed his energetic tenor playing and creative spirit to a wide variety of musical projects ranging from mainstream bebop to avant garde and beyond at venues across the nation and around the world. Although rooted in the great jazz tradition of his heroes Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane and Ornette Coleman, he continues to search for the mystery in music making and takes great joy in sharing the present moment with the listener. Peter Sommer is Associate Professor of Jazz Studies and Saxophone at Colorado State University in Ft. Collins. At CSU, Mr. Sommer directs Jazz Ensemble I and coordinates the Jazz Studies area. Peter is a D'Addario endorsed Woodwinds Artist.
