Musical refrains as summer wanes

       With listeners spread out on the grassy ampitheater in front of the Gold Hill Mesa community center, Thin Air Jazz (left, under white awning) performs Sept. 3 in the opening concert of the Westside development’s “Sizzling Saturdays In September” series. The free concerts are from 5 to 7 p.m. Next up is the Big Jim Adam & John Stilwagen blues duo Sept. 10, with the Air Force Academy’s Blue Steel Sept. 17. The colorful steel design in the foreground, part of an outdoor art endeavor by Gold Hill Mesa, is “Wellness Globe,” by local sculptor Ivan Kosta.
