The Rossonian Hotel in the Five Points neighborhood of Denver was the iconic center of Denver’s vibrant jazz scene. In fact, the area was known as “the Harlem of the West”. The club at the Rossonian hosted such jazz legends as Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, Charlie Parker, and Ella Fitzgerald. A recent story by Rocky Mountain PBS highlights the effort to preserve and revitalize The Rossonian. ANA has already played a small role in this effort by performing structural testing of the historic masonry. In fact, you can see flatjack and shearjack slots from our testing at the 7:21 mark in their video.
