We are excited to welcome the contemporary Afro-Caribbean and Latin Jazz sounds of Moderno back to the Nocturne stage. Moderno’s repertoire is anchored by a compelling book of original material, but also includes select Latin Jazz classics as well as works from contemporary masters, such as Miguel Zenon, Paquito D’Rivera, and John Benitez. Moderno is a two time Nocturne artist in residency “alumni” and has become a crowd favorite!
Jeremy Wendelin – woodwinds, Derech Banach – trumpet, Victor Perez – piano, Jon Cullison – bass, Manuel Lopez – drums
