For more than thirty years, Frank and Kay Nichols have been deeply immersed in Jazz. Not as performers, but as listeners. As it has happened so often in the music field, many of the venues have come and gone. The list of failed clubs and bars is endless. But thankfully, new ones continue to come on the scene and Kay and Frank were always there, supporting the great jazz players who live in the Denver metro area. Kay passed away on March 14th of this year and Frank decided that to remember Kay to all the friends she has made over the years, what better way to pay tribute to her than to honor her memory with jazz concerts, performed by the musicians whom she had come to know and appreciate. It is hoped that this first concert by the very talented Teresa Carroll and her group of excellent musicians will only be the first commemorating the life of Kay Nichols.
