Colorado Springs, Colorado

Colorado Springs

featuring Fourplay's "More Than a Dream"

Visitors to Colorado Springs, near the foot of Pike’s Peak, would not be surprised to learn that this area originally inspired America, The Beautiful. Beauty is not in short supply in this amazing natural setting, where millions of years of prehistoric lake sediment and alpine glaciers have carved the landscape into a beautiful series of hills, mountains, and lakes, punctuated by impressive mountains.

This landscape lends itself to skiing, hiking, and biking. The tradition of outdoor recreation in Colorado Springs might be one of the reasons why it is the site of the United States’ Olympic Committee and Olympic Training Center.

Fourplay is a jazz “supergroup” formed in 1990. Permanently featuring jazz keyboard legend Bob James, bassist Nathan East, and drummer Harvey Mason, the group has also included prominent guitarists Larry Carlton, Lee Ritenour, and Chuck Loeb (currently active). Fourplay is the only musical group ever to be recognized with a Congressional Record from the the United States Congress.
