The Heath Walton Band

All day

Nocturne is delighted to welcome the Heath Walton Band back for their second residency at Nocturne. This residency will feature original compositions, new arrangements, and selections from their debut album “Brooklyn’s Bridge.”  This project began in 2016 after Heath won a Pathway to Jazz Grant from the Boulder County Arts Alliance. The grant helped fund their previously mentioned album and is Heath’s second recording as a band leader. The Heath Walton Band’s music represents the modern jazz idiom albeit with rock, hip-hop, and R&B influences.

He received a Bachelor of Music in music performance from the University of Colorado in 2003 and a Master of the Arts in jazz studies from New York University in 2007. While in NYC, Heath Walton studied with some of the greatest saxophonists and musicians alive, such as George Garzone, Lenny Pickett, John Scofield, Jean-Michel Pilc, Brian Lynch, Tony Moreno, and Ralph Alessi to name a few.  Heath Walton has relocated back to Colorado to pursue a Doctorate of Musical Arts in jazz studies and graduated with his D.M.A. in 2016.

The Stu MacAskie Trio

All day

Stu MacAskie - Piano, Patrick McDevitt - Bass, Alex Heffron - Guitar


This special Sunday series was curated by Denver jazz pianist Stu MacAskie to explore the great drummer-less trios throughout jazz history.  Art Tatum, Nat King Cole, Oscar Peterson, and Benny Green all recorded and performed in the piano/guitar/bass format.  Allowing for a different sound, more freedom for the piano and guitar to work together, and a different focus on swinging, the Trios Trio plays music inspired by this great tradition along with original compositions and arrangements honoring this tradition.
