Three words explain this special April series: Dynamic. Thrilling. Swingin’.
Award-winning drummer, composer, and multi-instrumentalist Brian Claxton is known for his electrifying groove and rhythmic mastery. This series will feature Claxton’s compositions and arrangements performed by some of Denver’s finest: Tom Amend, Dana Landry, Steve Kovalcheck, and Erik Applegate. Brian is a two time Nocturne artist in residency alumni and we can’t wait to bring his sound back to our stage!
His diverse background includes touring internationally with jazz piano legend Monty Alexander and performing alongside Donny McCaslin, Chris Potter, Christian McBride, Dave Douglas, Randy Brecker, Nicholas Payton, and many others. A passionate student of the history of American music, Claxton has navigated a career with one foot in the past and one foot in the future. He has released three records as a co-leader and has appeared on over thirty others as a sideman. Claxton teaches at the University of Northern Colorado, and the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire.
An artist fee of $18 per guest (per set) applies to this show. Reservations highly recommended!
