Thin Air Jazz

When: Sun., Feb. 21, 5-7 p.m. and Sun., March 21, 5-7 p.m. 2010

Thin Air Jazz, the new big band ensemble featuring valve trombonist Phil Allen and guitarist Tom Taylor (both from the excellent Needlewood Orchestra), performs for free from 5 to 7 this evening at the Ancient Mariner (962 Manitou Ave., Manitou Springs, ancientmarinertavern.com). The 12-piece outfit models itself after Maynard Ferguson's Birdland Dream Band, so expect plenty of high notes along with offerings from the Count Basie, Woody Herman and Buddy Rich repertoires. This being the Springs, it's not surprising that the group features a number of current and former members of the USAFA's Falconaires, meaning the level of musicianship is guaranteed to impress. — Bill Forman
