Mike Moreno – Lotus Quartet

Mike Moreno – Lotus Quartet

Jazz at Lincoln Center

With guitarist Mike Moreno, pianist Aaron Parks, bassist Doug Weiss, and drummer Marcus Gilmore

"There are many other guitarists out there pushing towards a modern ideal, but none with the precise coordinates that Mike Moreno has charted." –JazzTimes

Guitarist Mike Moreno is an acclaimed composer, bandleader, and guitarist who has worked with a long and diverse list of contemporaries, including Joshua Redman, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, Robert Glasper, Q-Tip, Bilal, and Lizz Wright. In this performance, we’ll likely hear a selection of his original compositions, featuring memorably melodic post-bop tunes performed on electric guitar—and perhaps a solo or duo piece showing off his formidable acoustic technique. Moreno doesn’t hesitate to show off his chops in the right moment, but he is an exemplar of restraint and efficiency, making every note count in both his written melodies and improvised solos. He’s at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola for one night only, so make sure to swing by.
