"Roots & Rhythm has done some big projects lately working with Todd Edmunds (of the Tel Arc Artist Otis Taylor band) on tuba, JD Kelley on trombone, Rod Buckner (Buckner Funken Jazz) on trumpet and Mikey Smith on organ for a big New Orleans project. This was filmed and featured at the recent Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Pimps of Joytime after party. Roots & Rhythm is also a featured band of the Blue Roots Denver Blues & Jazz feature film to be shown in 5 screenings for the 2014 Five Points Jazz Festival Film Series. These screenings will feature Roots & Rhythm performing live before a screening at the prestigious McNichols Civic Center Building in downtown Denver. Roots & Rhythm really started making their mark when given the opportunity to be featured on Momma Kat’s Show for a 2 hour special on Roots & Rhythm and their original music. We also played her last show on KUVO 89.3 as a live performance and live broadcast which was also filmed for the Blue Roots Denver Blues & Jazz Film."  Tim Wenger, Colorado Music Buzz Magazine

"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
