This week at The Jazz Gallery has turned into a mini-residency for guitarist Mike Moreno. After joining the Kendrick Scott/Kanoa Mendenhall Mentoring Series band on Thursday and vocalist Sachal Vasandani on Friday, Moreno returns on Saturday evening for two sets with a new quartet. Featuring pianist Jon Cowherd, bassist Matt Brewer, and drummer Nate Smith, the quartet has a decidedly electric tilt and will perform new Moreno compositions.

Before coming out to hear this brand new material, take a listen to Moreno performing one of his longtime favorite compositions—Wayne Shorter’s “The Big Push”—at the Blue Whale in Los Angeles last month.

The Mike Moreno Quartet plays The Jazz Gallery on Saturday, December 7, 2019. The group features Mr. Moreno on guitar, Jon Cowherd on piano, Matt Brewer on bass, and Nate Smith on drums. Sets are at 7:30 and 9:30 P.M. $25 general admission ($10 for members), $35 reserved table seating ($20 for members) for each set. Purchase tickets here.
