The Dawn Clement Trio Plays Monk: Thursdays in October

Pianist/Vocalist/Composer Dawn Clement has established herself as one of the most sought after musicians working today. With her joyful presence, consummate technique and distinctive sound, Clement has gained the attention and respect of musicians, critics and fans through the US and abroad. “In all this world of jazz, there are very few individual voices, no matter what the instrument, but Dawn has come up with a voice that’s unique…” says legendary jazz trombonist Julian Priester. With 5 CD’s under her belt, not to mention appearing as side woman on Jane Ira Bloom’s latest release “Wild Lines” and Emi Meyer’s “Monochrome”, Dawn has been hailed as the “Wonder Woman of Seattle” by Paul DeBarros (Seattle Times). Downbeat says “The revelation is Dawn Clement’s piano, always ready with the lyricism or structure the moment needs. With her newest release, Tandem, she explores the magic of musical pairs with some of her closest musical cohorts. Dawn has recently re-located from the Pacific Northwest to Denver, Colorado to take on the new role of Assistant Professor and Area Coordinator of the Jazz and American Music Department at Metropolitan State University of Denver. She holds a Bachelor of Music from Cornish College of the Arts and a Masters of Fine Arts in Music Composition from Vermont College of the Arts. When she is not playing, composing, touring, or teaching, Clement lives in Denver with her husband and three children, Noah, Elvin, and Adele.

For walk-in guests and bar reservations, an artist fee of $15 per guest (per set) applies to this show.

Jazz Convergence: Fridays in October

Small group jazz does not get any better than this. Each of thes members are regulars on the Nocturne stage, appearing in a number of bands, but we are especially honored to host this truly world-class ensemble when they come together as Convergence. This will be the band's first Nocturne Residency series, and we could not be more excited to see what kind of sparks fly over the course of five performances.


Convergence was formed in 1991, performing and teaching across the country and dedicated to the idea of sharing the intimacy and the spark of improvised music with a live audience. The long time friendships and musical connections between the members of this sextet allow them to create original music that is at once creative and exciting. Their creative collaborations have yielded six critically acclaimed albums - they have been featured on NPR’s “Toast of the Nation”and “Jazz Set” and performed at three International Association for Jazz Education conventions. In New York they have been featured at the Knitting Factory, and the Blue Note.

Maria Schneider writes of Convergence: “Convergence is phenomenal. It's a rare treat to hear a small group play compositions and arrangements that are so rich in ideas and formal development...each musician is truly unique and extraordinary. I can't say enough about this group.”

For walk-in guests, an artist fee of $20 per guest (per set) applies to this show
