Moderno returns for their second residency at Nocturne featuring the performance of contemporary Latin Jazz. The group’s first residence, three years ago, laid a foundation of music from many Afro-Caribbean traditions and the ways that they have blended and cross-inspired with jazz. Moderno’s repertoire of Latin Jazz classics still provides a foundation for each show, but now the group is taking a step forward and bringing new music to the tradition. This residence will feature new compositions and arrangements by the band’s members — each one offering new colors and new challenges for Moderno’s outstanding soloists. In addition to original material, the band will feature music from contemporary masters, such as Miguel Zenon, Paquito D’Rivera, and John Benitez. As Moderno combines all these elements in its shows, from classics to brand-new material, the audience becomes a participant in the variety, energy, and beauty that is Afro-Caribbean Jazz.

Bandleader and saxophonist Jeremy Wendelin is a versatile musician who brings passion and artistry to every performance. Jeremy has performed in a range of musical situations from street corner to club to concert hall — from solo saxophone to symphony orchestra. He is the lead alto player for the Ultraphonic Jazz Orchestra and saxophonist for the Spotlight Band, and maintains a busy schedule as a freelance player around Colorado. As a teacher, he works with woodwind sections at several Denver-area schools and maintains a small studio of private students. Jeremy regularly leads his jazz quartet at clubs, concerts, and events. Whether playing classic jazz or new compositions, the quartet is always entertaining and exciting. In addition, Jeremy leads the Latin Jazz quintet Moderno, which explores Afro-Caribbean jazz from traditional to contemporary. As a jazz player, teacher, classical soloist — on every stage, Jeremy crafts a great musical experience and invites his audience to enjoy.
