Connor Terrones and his jazz ensemble will be performing select original compositions and arrangements. Although Terrones has musical influences that span throughout every genre of music, his composing in the jazz idiom is highly inspired by his favorite jazz composers: Maria Schneider, John Coltrane, Wayne Shorter, Brian Blade, Mark Guiliana, Charles Mingus, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Gil Evans, Herbie Hancock, Duke Ellington, Thelonious Monk and Michael Brecker. Connor's writing absorbs the colorful harmonies and melodic rhythms of these great composers while constantly searching for unique and honest ways to express himself.
Connor Terrones is a guitarist, composer, arranger and private instructor currently residing in Denver, Colorado.
The Quintet: Connor Terrones – Guitar, Taylor Clay – Tenor Sax, Annie Booth – Piano, Matt Smiley – Acoustic Bass, and Alejandro Castaño – Drums
