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."

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!

HERE'S TO 2015
Posted On : 2015 January 11

Hey guys, a belated Happy New Year to all of you!  2014 was an incredible year; it featured my return to Vancouver/Seatte scenes, the NW debut of my orchestral work, new musical relationships, and new family members :).  Here's some things to look forward to in 2015: more shows, new music, kicking off a new jazz education program at Jean Lyons School of Music, and my film composing debut!  Keep it coming back here at noriegamusic.com and I'll be letting you know all about the goods throughout the year.  Cheers!
