2020 has been a challenging year for the world, especially so for the musical communities within America – but in times of tremendous adversity, great art arises from struggle much like a phoenix from the ashes. Bringing music to the Nocturne stage to help us look ahead, the Derek Banach Quintet will perform original, straight ahead compositions by all of its members. The lineup features a number of Denver’s finest as they get back on the bandstand after too long a break due to the 2020 pandemic crisis. Musical guests include: Peter Sommer, David Bernot, Todd Reid, Ken Walker and Jeff Jenkins.
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, Keith Oxman, Joe Bonner and Ron Miles to name but a few.
