Among Metro Denver’s pre-eminent jazz families is certainly the Fuller Family of Aurora, Colo. The patriarch, bassist Fred Fuller and noted saxophonist, daughter Tia Fuller visited KUVO on the occasion of the family band getting back together for Papa Fuller’s 70th birthday. “It’s might have been 15 years since we all played together,” Fred told KUVO's Arturo Gómez. The family will assemble for two sets (6:00 and 8:30 p.m.) on Wed. Dec. 27, 2017 at Dazzle at Baur’s.
Vocalist Kevin Mahogany has passed away at age 59, reports the Kansas City Star and other sources.

He contributed to dozens of other projects, and toured the world.
On Monday December 18th, we close out a year of jazz centenary honorees by showcasing Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson on what would have been his 100th birthday. Eddie “Cleanhead” Vinson’s Texas roots came blaring out of his saxophone in the most bluesy way. His career went back to the 1930s, through the big bands of the 1940s, and included playing, singing, composing and leading bands. A young John Coltrane played in his band in the early 50s.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
