Second Sunday
Jazz Affair

July 12th

Barry Fagin and Friends
with Special Guest Lila Mori

Barry Fagin - 2015

Pianist Barry Fagin is thrilled to be back with PPJASS and working with Lila Mori! The band will be playing lots of dance music: Cole Porter, Jobim, Richard Rogers, George Gershwin, Duke Ellington, and many other greats from the American jazz songbook. They will also play a few tunes that are a little more challenging and seldom performed, tunes for serious jazz fans. Barry's goal at every gig is for everyone to hear at least one tune they've never heard before, and to play it well enough to make them go out and buy the record (or at least download the MP3). So don't be surprised to hear a Colorado Springs premiere or two. Come ready to swing!

Barry's Friends are: Gary Sanders, Bass; Dave Hardin, Drums and Bud Gordon, Trumpet.

Christi Bovee--vocals
Mark Bovee--piano
Brian Hobson--drums
John Flores--upright bass

PPJASS

The Pikes Peak Jazz And Swing Society is your window into the jazz world. The monthly newsletter, Pikes Peak Jass Notes, and the weekly email blast, PPJASS eNotes, provide information about jazz events and programs, locations of clubs which feature jazz in the Colorado Springs area and other news of interest to the jazz lover.

Second Sunday Jazz Affairs are held monthly and feature a variety of music, jamming and dancing. Admission charges are minimal. Special events and concerts featuring nationally and internationally acclaimed musicians are scheduled regularly.

Outstanding regional high school student/musicians interested in jazz are encouraged through the $2,000 Danny Stevenson Memorial Scholarship awarded annually to a student planning to continue jazz studies in college.

Professional musicians are recognized by the Alice Award given annually to an individual who exhibits a high degree of musical talent and experience, and who also possesses those intangible attributes that can only be described as "class."

Mission Statement

The mission of the Pikes Peak Jazz And Swing Society is to preserve, support and foster jazz in its various forms; to provide encouragement to jazz musicians in their efforts; to provide scholarships for jazz education; to assist members in their knowledge and enjoyment of jazz; to provide a focal point for the exchange of information about jazz and jazz musicians, and to provide a social environment in which to experience jazz.
