About

Award-winning composer/keyboardist VICTOR NORIEGA has been described as having “the sensitivity of Bill Evans, the propulsion of Horace Silver and the experimentation of Thelonious Monk,” while his compositions have been characterized as “layered, complex, interesting and rhythmic,” “introspective at times, energetic and boundary-stretching at others… seamlessly blend[ing] jazz and modern classical influences."

2017 ALREADY ROLLIN!
Posted On : 2017 January 19

It might be a bit late to be saying "Happy New Year", although I still need to stop myself from writing '2016' when I date my signature ;)  
It has sure been awhile since I wrote on here, but I'm still alive, and well too!  Anyways, there are a few things cooking already in 2017.  I'm gonna bring in the New Year with a very fun, impromptu show at a new venue in Vancouver named BENCHMARK:

JAN 24, 8:30-11:00

VICTOR NORIEGA/JOHN GROSS/SEAN DRABITT/JOE POOLE

In closing - A real strong and direct "Happy New Year" to you and yours!!

2016 VANCOUVER INT'L JAZZFEST - VNQ @ TANGENT CAFE, JUNE 30
Posted On : 2016 June 27

I wanted to let you know of a performance I have coming up this Thursday night for the 2016 Vancouver Int’l Jazz Fest.  It’s a quartet that I’ve compiled with great musicians from across the Pacific Northwest.  This will be the debut for this particular combination of players; I’m really looking forward to how this all comes together on the bandstand.  We’ll be playing some original material and some classic jazz repertoire as well.  The venue is a great place to hear live music, and they’ve got an awesome menu too, so come hungry!

VICTOR NORIEGA QUARTET @ TANGENT CAFE:
VN :) keys
STUART MACDONALD (Seattle) tenor sax
TOM WAKELING (Portland) bass
NINO DIPASQUALE (Vancouver) drums

TICKETS: $10

other pertinent info is on the EVENTS PAGE

Hope to see you out on Thursday - enjoy your week!!

Hello out there and Happy New Year!  I must apologize, I haven't been completely active on the upkeep for this site this past year.  But alas, I have updated the EVENTS PAGE, and you'll see there's a bunch of fun shows coming up.  My resolution(s) this year: make it easier for you guys to know what's going on with me.. share (i.e. update the website) more.. learn more.. make music!  Thanks to all of you who have kept on coming back here; drop me a message anytime!
