For over two decades, Don Byron, a recipient of the first Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, has been a singular voice in an astounding range of musical contexts, exploring widely divergent traditions while continually striving for what he calls “a sound above genre.”

As clarinetist, saxophonist, composer, arranger, and social critic, he redefines every genre of music he plays, be it classical, salsa, hip-hop, funk, rhythm & blues, klezmer, or any jazz style from swing and bop to cutting-edge downtown improvisation.  He has been consistently voted best clarinetist by critics and readers alike in leading international music journals since being named “Jazz Artist of the Year” by Down Beat in 1992. Acclaimed as much for his restless creativity as for his unsurpassed virtuosity as a player, Byron has presented a multitude of projects at major music festivals around the world.

A recent addition to the music department faculty at Metro State University, we are now extremely fortunate to be able to call him a Denverite and present his unique, creative musical vision at our next Blind Tiger event.

Check out this interview where he discusses his recent Ivey-Divey project…

This event will be hosted by La Cour, Denver’s hottest jazz bistro and art bar. As always, our Blind Tiger events are intimate affairs that include a gourmet three-course dinner* accompanied by libations. Seating is very limited, so make your reservations today to guaranty your spot!
