Moderno is a dynamic latin jazz quintet that brings together some of Colorado’s finest players.  The group plays music based on many Afro-Caribbean traditions -- music of Cuba, Brazil, Puerto Rico, and others. Featuring pulsating rhythms from traditional latin dances to jazz-influenced beats to funk grooves; the horns lay down a variety of colors -- red-hot to cool and bluesy, and the group’s outstanding soloists stretch their imaginations to give listeners a new and unique experience in each show. Whether just listening or feeling the urge to get up and dance, audiences can’t resist this group’s energy.
