July 14, 2018 ,

Happy Bastille Day!  Its a sweltering 93 degrees here in Denver, CO. But I love it :)  Having taken some down time to recover from hip surgery, I'm now building strength both physically and musically.  New music is on my piano, and in my soul.  Contemplating a new recording project and new venues and returning to writing.  Amazing how losing the physical pain I've carried around for more than a year can be oh so rejuvenating and inspiring!  I have a few gig this fall and winter, so I hope you will check out my show page and come by to say hello. 

Love & peace, 

Terri Jo

My favorite time of year!!!  

Oh that cool crisp feeling is in the air again. The colors up here in the high country are stunning!! And with the excitement of fall, come fun gigs too! 

I've just posted some new performances for October and November on my "show" page. I hope you will check them out as there is quite a variety of events coming up.  And.....if you or someone you know is interested in hosting a house concert for either jazz or singer/songwriter folk, please email or give me a call! I really love performing for the intimate and relaxed house concerts that are becoming more and more popular.  Check my contact page for the best way to reach me. 

Here's wishing you a lovely autumn with family and friends, 

love, TerriJo

Summertime.....and the livin is EASY?!?! 

Hard to believe that it will be August in less than a week!! I've still got a lot of summer hiking, swimming, evening walks, and bike riding to do before this warm weather turns to fall (which I do indeed love too!)  It has been an exciting last six months as "Quirktett" unfolds with jazz harmonies, intriguing song choices, and a variety of performances! I adore my singing companions in this group and feel like we are a bunch of soulmates when we are up there on stage. We will be performing at DazzleJazz on Sept. 15 for one show only! Hope you can all come. Yes! All of you!!! Got to make those reservations soon. www.dazzlejazz.com

2017 ! Oh my !  

It is indeed a curious time! So many uncertainties as we head into the new year. One thing I do know, music is indeed a source of self care, comfort, and excitement! I am so very grateful for all the wonderful musical adventures that came my way in 2016!  I recently heard congratulations from programers at 3 different Colorado music stations regarding the release of "From This Moment".  So nice to receive kudos from these music industry folks! I'm sharing one here with you.......from Chris Kresge (noted radio show dj, music show promoter & critic), with the posting of his "Best of 2016" Colorado recordings.  I am honored to be chosen as one of the three picks in the Jazz category!
