Andrew Vogt Quartet: Riffing on Mulligan and Pepper

All day

Adam Bodine - piano, Drew Morell - bass, Andreas Schmid - drums

Wednesday nights in February, the Andrew Vogt Quartet honors saxophone icons Gerry Mulligan and Art Pepper. Gerry Mulligan's baritone saxophone and Art Pepper's alto saxophone helped lead and define the west coast jazz sound of the 1950's. The Andrew Vogt Jazz Quartet will present many of their great compositions as well as select jazz standards they both favored. Being heavily influenced by both Pepper and Muligan , Andrew Vogt has also written and recorded a number of original works, dedicated to Gerry and Art, and will perform those during this residency at Nocturne as well.

Since moving to Colorado, Andrew Vogt has established himself as an in-demand freelance sax/clarinet player. He is featured on many artists’ releases including recordings by Mark Sloniker, Paul Mullikin, Adam Bodine and more. Andrew has four CD’s out under his own name entitled “Action Plan”, “Cats Afoot”, “Twirling Zucchini Trio” and his 2019 release "Distracted by Donuts." Andrew Vogt earned a degree in Music Education from the University of Nebraska while majoring in saxophone and minoring in clarinet. In addition to performing, he is proud to be the band director at St. Joseph Catholic School in Fort Collins, and St. John the Evangelist Catholic School and Immanuel Lutheran School in Loveland. He also maintains a private studio, teaching woodwind students of all levels of skill and experience.

Annie Booth Trio

All day

Nocturne is delighted to welcome acclaimed Denver pianist/composer Annie Booth back to the stage on February 3rd and 10th. Annie will be joined on stage by Patrick McDevitt on bass and Dru Heller on drums. 

Annie Booth has established herself as an active force on the local and national scene as a composer, pianist and leader-performer of her many projects (the Annie Booth Trio, Sextet, and Big Band) and as a busy side-musician. Booth holds a Bachelors of Music Performance and a Masters of Music in Jazz Performance and Pedagogy from the Thompson Jazz Studies Program at the University of Colorado.

As a composer, Annie's national awards include the ASCAP (Herb Alpert Young Jazz Composers’ Award, Phoebe Jacobs Prize), Downbeat Magazine (2020 Outstanding Graduate Performance), and the Jazz Education Network (2020 Young Composers Showcase), among others. In her hometown of Denver, CO, she was named “Best in Denver” in the jazz genre by Westword Magazine in 2015, 2016, and 2017.  Annie Booth’s most recent compositional endeavors include Flowers of Evil and the Annie Booth Big Band. Flowers of Evil is an evenings-length song cycle for chamber-jazz dectet based on the poetry of 19th cent. French poet Charles Baudelaire​ in the poetry collection of the same name. Composed in 2017 during Booth’s time as Musician-In-Residence at the Banff Centre in Banff, Alberta, Canada, Flowers of Evil premiered at the Dairy Arts Center in Boulder, CO in March 2018.

When Annie is not performing with her trio or composing, she adores working with the Colorado Conservatory for the Jazz Arts (CCJA), an organization of which she is an alumna and current faculty member. In 2017, in conjunction with CCJA, she created the first ever jazz camp exclusively for young women, SheBop Workshop which continues still today. She is fiercely passionate about empowering the next generation of young women to express themselves thorough the jazz art form.
