"Roots & Rhythm frontman James Speiser and KUVO DJ Erik Troe both know a
few things about blues and jazz, so it's no surprise that the two came up with the
concept for Blue Roots Denver, a Denver-produced program that features local blues
and jazz musicians. The pilot for the show, which will feature live performances,
as well as stories focusing on the state's musical history, is slated to be shot
at Lannie's Clocktower Cabaret on Wednesday, August 28.
"First is to bring our blues and jazz scene into focus and help foster nationally
the reputation that Denver deserves as a city known for dynamic, creative music.
There is a family of musicians and venues being coordinated in this effort.
Second, there is a younger generation that can carry on this music, and we will
include high school and college aged people in the process of performing, filming,
producing and promoting each episode of Blue Roots Denver. Dr. Malcolm Lynn Baker,
Director of Jazz Studies at University of Denver'" Jon Solomon, Westword
"That’s how we met James Speiser,
leader of the band Roots & Rhythm. We became close after that meeting and kept
in touch. Very quickly James Speiser gained a recognition in denver’s blues
scene and his band Roots & Rhythm start appearing frequently in Denver’s
clubs and venues. After a year of performaning he called us to film and record
Roots & Rhythm at the Sheraton Hotel downtown denver. We brought the multitrack
and video material to our studio (www.ergRecords.com) to post-produce it.

vocals and funky guitar stylings of James Speiser. James teamed up with the tough

& Rhythm. Roots & Rhythm is authentic and original. With their own unique
style they cover great R&B material and also perform some great originals.
The band is ranked #2 on Reverb Nation Denver Blues Charts and #84 Nationally (www.ReverbNation.com/RootsRhythm)&
