On this very special evening the Ben Markley Trio and Nocturne’s newly minted record label team up to celebrate a debut release: The Ben Markley Trio: Live at Nocturne.

“Featuring The Ben Markley Trio on Nocturne’s debut record label release is quite an honor. Ben is a world class jazz pianist and composer. His tunes and improvisations are fantastic and he’s such a gentle but strong band leader. This recording captures the magic of three superb players listening, reacting and elevating one another. It embodies the vibe we curate and the art we are passionate about cultivating at Nocturne.” -Scott Mattson, Nocturne Co-Owner and Creative Director

Ben Markley is an accomplished pianist, band leader and composer/arranger, active throughout the Rocky Mountain front range and has performed with Brian Lynch, Greg Osby, Eddie Henderson, Terell Stafford, George Garzone, Bobby Shew and John Fedchock and many others. Markley’s latest big band recording project Clockwise – The Music of Cedar Walton (OA2 records) earned a coveted four-star review by Downbeat Magazine in Spring of 2017. Markley is a Professor of Music at the University of Wyoming where he directs and coaches a number of Jazz ensembles and teaches applied jazz piano, and directs the UW Jazz Festival.
