Back in February, we were regrettably unable to present guitarist Mike Moreno due to inclement weather in the form of Winter Storm Nemo. Fortunately, we expect no such interruptions this time around and are pleased to present Mike Moreno and his quartet on our stage this Friday, October 4th. This marks the 10th year that we’ve had Mike perform at The Jazz Gallery and we’re proud to have him here with us yet again with his band, which will feature Jon Cowherd on piano, Doug Weiss on bass, and Kendrick Scott on drums, with whom Mike has performed as part of Kendrick Scott’s Oracle, which released Conviction on Concord Records earlier this year.
Here are a couple of our favorite videos of Mike. If you haven’t heard him play before, please take a listen—you won’t be disappointed:
