The Just Jazz Quintet
The JJQ (Just Jazz Quintet) is a five-piece combo based in northern Colorado (Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, and vicinity). Not just another jazz band, this group of well-trained musicians plays straight-ahead contemporary jazz with verve, taste, and technical proficiency.
In its current incarnation, the JJQs regular personnel are:
Ron Holleman on trumpet, flugelhorn, and other trumpet-like things
Andrew Vogt on saxophones, clarinet, and other woodwinds
Chuck Landgraf on drums/percussion
Micheal Olson on bass
Bob Montgomery on piano/keyboards
The JJQ was started in 2000 by trumpeter/flugelhornist Ron Holleman and drummer Chuck Landgraf, and the combination worked so well that the band lived and grew. The JJQ is now a local fixture and plays regularly at a variety of venues around the area (see Gigs for current info).
Along the way the band has built a loyal following of appreciative fans, and their monthly third-Friday gigs at Avogadros Number in Fort Collins attract enthusiastic, standing-room-only crowds. Theyve also performed for the Fort Collins Jazz Festival, Windsor Arts Festival, Loveland Art Museum, Fort Collins Museum, Tri-Media Film Festival, Fort Collins Downtown Business Association, and a variety of corporate parties and private gigs.
