Colorado's music scene is deeply rooted in jazz and the Five Points neighborhood. That rich history makes Saturday's 11th Annual Five Points Jazz Festival a must-attend event (yes, that is a marching order). You can find the festival's schedule here. There are plenty of options, but make sure to check out the Doug Jackson Quartet when they take over Coffee on the Point for a 1 p.m. set. Frontman Doug Jackson's (pictured) rhythmic style combines the weight of funk and the dynasty of jazz. —Derek Kessinger
