Saturday nights in January, Nocturne features the Derek Banach Quintet as they explore material from Kenny Garrett, Mulgrew Miller, John Hicks, George Cables as well as inspired original works of modern straight ahead jazz. Two sets: 6:30pm-7:45 pm and 9-10:15 pm.
Colorado native Derek Banach has performed professionally for 26 years in a variety of settings from Jazz to Hip-Hop, Salsa, Classical, and Reggae. His roots are firmly set in the Hard-Bop stylings of 60s period icons such as Lee Morgan, Freddie Hubbard and Woody Shaw.
Derek’s quintet album, “Tugende” displays his composing talents and personal approach to trumpet playing. He has recorded with Italian producer Nicola Conte, Quintetto X, Paul Mulliken and has performed with Wynton Marsalis, Richie Cole, Joe Bonner and Ron Miles.
On the Nocturne stage: Derek Banach on trumpet, David Bernot on sax, Jeff Jenkins on piano, Ken Walker on bass and Todd Reid on drums.
