JazzFest: Hazel Miller, Metropolitan Jazz Orchestra and the Neil Bridge 7+ with Karen Lee 

A night of jazz highlighting some of the best jazz groups in Denver. Featuring a wonderful cross section of jazz styles that include the classics and standards, cutting edge big band repertoire and the amazing vocal stylings of Denver’s Hazel Miller.

Hazel Miller  is bringing to the Arvada Center the realities of listening to her live performance art. Whether she is Hazel Miller at Arvada Center doing a gig with Big Head Todd & the Monsters, lending her talents to support the United Way, or Children’s Hospital, performing for our troops in far of places or singing for presidents, Hazel brings a presence and an energy that’s contagious and uplifting. No recording or on air listener can begin to comprehend the atmosphere that’s created when Hazel Miller cruises through a song. It’s like seeing an amazing rainbow. You could take as many pictures of it as you want and share them with everyone, but there is just nothing like having been there.
