Music

Our acoustically designed room in the heart of Denver plays host to live jazz nightly (Tuesday through Sunday). Check the calendar below for set times as they may vary. Nocturne’s distinctive Artist in Residency programming is at the core of our line up. Most artists who perform at Nocturne engage in a four to eight week run that focuses on the exploration of a musical icon, the study of a jazz genre, or the exhibition of an Artist's own original work. This old-school approach to programming combines the unique opportunity to hone one’s craft with regular stage time, while also establishing an elevated rapport with Denver music fans. Nocturne is proud to be the only venue in Colorado that features jazz exclusively, and we are also pleased to feature national touring artists on special occasions.

ABOUT LIVE MUSIC AT NOCTURNE:

At this time, our live music performances are available by reservation only. By reserving your seat for dinner and a show you can enjoy the live music along with a three course menu by our talented culinary team. You can make a reservation on-line or via phone @ 303.295.3333.

In addition to dining on site, we recognize that some members of our community are unable to join us in person this summer. As such, we'll be live streaming several of our performances for you to enjoy from the comfort and safety of your home. Follow us at https://www.facebook.com/nocturnejazz/ for live streams and recordings of our past performances. 

Supporting the musicians practicing their craft on our stage is important to us - your prepaid dinner reservation includes the artist fees that support fair pay to our music community. You can support in other ways such as purchasing music online, physical CD's or sending Venmo tips to your favorite artists. The music community is strong but still working to rebound from a lot of cancelled gigs during the COVID-19 pandemic. Your support of their craft will keep this art form alive.

The Clay-Gott Quintet: Vintage West Coast

Taylor Clay (sax) - Daryl Gott (sax) - Ken Walker (bass) - Tom Amend (piano) - Kevin Matthews (drums)

Taylor Clay and Daryl Gott present this new project that explores the sonic timbres and compositions of Lee Konitz, Warne Marsh and others who established the “West Coast” jazz sound of the 1950's.

The interwoven sounds of Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh has left a significant and somewhat unexplored landmark in the world of jazz. Their melodic ingenuity and technical virtuosity opened a door to a fresh and modern approach to jazz composition and improvisation. The sources of their inspiration are found blended into their music. While borrowing the form and harmonic structure of an already existing piece of music (usually one from the Great American Song Book collection), Lee Konitz and Warne Marsh would then write their own original melody over that existing structure. These new melodies were heavily inspired by composers from the baroque era, such as Johann Sebastian Bach. The highly ornamented and virtuosic melodies included counterpoint, harmonized themes and demanding rhythms rarely seen in the jazz idiom at the time. This new sound of jazz which was being cultivated in the early 1950’s in Los Angeles and San Fransisco was labeled by theorists and critics as “West Coast Jazz”.

Taylor Clay was born in Brooklyn, NY and began his musical journeys at the age of 13 and went on to study at the Crane School of Music in Potsdam, NY. After completing his degree in Music Performance in 2012, he moved to Colorado to attend the Univeristy of Northern Colorado as a graduate student and teaching assistant. Taylor currently lives in Denver, Colorado works as a busy freelance musician.

Saxophonist and composer Daryl Gott was born and raised in Denver. Growing up in a musical family Daryl was exposed to music and specifically jazz at a young age. He graduated from Denver School of the arts and continued his formal music education at the City College of New York where he studied with saxophonist Jon Gordon. Daryl is established in Denver's jazz scene as an in demand sideman and a dynamic bandleader.
