Telluride Smooth Jazz, out of the Denver area, provides a unique trademark blend of smooth jazz covers, jazz standards, and fusion jams. Live performances by Telluride Smooth Jazz include a powerful array of songs by artists such as Spyro Gyra, Richard Elliot, John Klemmer, Boney James, David Sanborn, Lee Ritenour, Eric Johnson, etc. Telluride Smooth Jazz has a way of re-arranging a song into a very loose format so as not to be limited by the song itself – but to give ample space for improvisation and fusion jams. The freedom to take musical detours into uncharted territory can make the music surprisingly unpredictable and extremely interesting as listeners try to anticipate what will happen next. Telluride Smooth Jazz lays down the funky smooth grooves that give people an irresistible urge to dance, while mixing in a touch of jazz/improv to keep it fresh.
