Mike Bjella Quartet Tuesdays at Nocturne

Dec 7, 2017

Joined by a trio of Colorado musicians, Michigan-based saxophonist Mike Bjella brings his warm and buoyant compositions to Nocturne for a winter Artist in Residency. Drawing inspiration from Alice Coltrane, Stevie Wonder and Hermeto Pascoal, the pallet is wide, creative and all every player is a well-versed and brave explorer of time, rhythm, and harmony.

On Thursday, the musical week gets started with tenor saxophonist Houston Person finishing up his two-night stand at Dazzle, 1512 Curtis, supported by pianist Jeff Jenkins, bassist Ken Walker and drummer Paul Romaine. And if you listen to his current High Note CD, Rain or Shine recorded in June 2017, you know that he still delivers his signature, blues-filled sound with both warmth and authority. There’s a reason why Person comes back to town with some frequency. His sets on Thursday are at 6 and 8:30 p.m.


“Come rain or come shine,” 83-year-old tenor saxophonist Houston Person still delivers a sound that covers the listener with warmth and soul. That’s the lesson contained in the saxophonist’s newest disc on HighNote Records appropriately titled Rain or Shine.

Jeff Jenkins, Mike Abbott and Paul Romaine are thrilled to be paying tribute to the great jazz guitarist and composer John Abercrombie. Stemming from personal and professional relationships with John, this trio brings the intimate sound of John's compositions to light. This organ trio will serve as a platform for his voice to continue to be heard, and to continue to breathe into the future.
