Live-Streaming Show: Jeremy Wendelin Trilogy Project

All day


Jeremy Wendelin returns to Nocturne for a residence focused on the trio of saxophone, bass, and drums. This instrumentation, pioneered by Sonny Rollins, affords artists great freedom in exploring their material. The sound is simple, but the music is full of complexities; the players have freedom, but also more responsibility to create the right sound for each moment. In the years since Rollins’ early recordings, many artists have taken on this format, including Branford Marsalis, Joe Lovano, Joshua Redman, Kenny Garrett, and Melissa Aldana.

The Band: Ron Bland, on bass, brings a wealth of experience from small groups to symphonies. With his deep understanding of improvised music, he is the sort of player who elevates those around him. Todd Reid, on drums, brings swing, propulsion and deep musicality to the ensemble. Todd is one of Denver's finest drummers and has played with dozens of international jazz superstars.  Jeremy Wendelin, the leader and saxophonist, offers a variety of musical colors while playing with strength and intensity. The group starts with the work laid down by Rollins and others, but also tries to bring new colors and stylistic ideas to the trio setting. The goal is to maintain the freedom and “open” sound of this classic instrumentation while incorporating new arranging ideas, exploring different styles, and using different saxophone colors. Selected standards and original material alongside major works like Rollins’ Freedom Suite give this residence a range of moods, from whimsical to serious and focused.
