Joshua Trinidad is a Mexican-American trumpet player, composer, and producer, who takes multiple styles of music such as jazz, ambient, rock, electronic, and lo-fi, as well as elements from hip hop and effortlessly reshapes them into a unique soundscape.

His remarkable ease in handling the often-contrary conventions of “jazz” ensured a strong interest in both acoustic and electric music. This chameleon-like ability soon established him as a much sought-after musician in the southwest region of the United States as well as in Europe and Central Asia, ultimately led to his a colorful and diverse resume as a sideman. During his time recording and performing in Scandinavia, Joshua Trinidad was introduced to Giacomo Bruzzo, who welcomed him into his prestigious and much-lauded roster RareNoise Records in London, England.

Alongside recording Joshua’s own material, he has recorded many studio sessions with artists such as Sage Francis, Chicano Batman, Nathaniel Rateliff, Riatsu, and Umlaut. Joshua Trinidad is also a thriving artist on the Subcontinental Records label in Bangalore, India by visionary Arun Natarajan.

Trinidad has his own individual sound, influenced as much by the poetry of the Rocky Mountain nature as by electronic piston reverb, and last but not least by musicians like Brian Eno and Jon Hassell. But more than anything else, Trinidad has himself. Listening to him play, it’s easy to forget that his instrument is a trumpet.  —JazzTimes 2019

Roger Green is a Denver-based songwriter, composer, and producer. He is a former guitarist for The Czars. He occasionally plays guitar for Ron Miles, Porlolo, and Glenn Taylor. He has produced albums for Esme Patterson and Joe Sampson. He often collaborates with writers such as Laird Hunt, Eleni Sikelianos, and Anne Waldman.

Joe Sorcic first picked up drumsticks at the age of 12 after receiving a drum set as a Christmas gift from his mother. “The first time I knew music was very important was when I had this feeling from the music when it hit me hard emotionally,” Joe said.

“If you have aggression, or you have sadness or happiness, music channels right to that and connects.” Joe was introduced to jazz by KUVO JAZZ. In 2015, to celebrate 30 years on the air and invest in the future of jazz, KUVO JAZZ interviewed 30 local musicians under the age of 30.

“Jazz influenced me early on to work on my technique of playing,” Joe said. Joe is inspired by the Denver music scene and excited about the future of jazz.

“There’s new jazz clubs popping up everywhere and a lot of the young musicians I hang out with are definitely very into jazz,” Joe said. “The younger generation is going to help push [jazz] forward and the older generation is going to help usher in that new era as well as inspire it.”
