Saturday nights in November, Nocturne Jazz & Supper Club features the Derek Banach Quintet as they honor the eternal Wayne Shorter.
The Quintet is Derek Banach on trumpet, Jeremy Wendelin on sax, Tom Amend on piano, Patrik McDevitt on bass and Mike Marlier on drums.
Colorado native Derek Banach has performed professionally for 25 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 60’s 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.
