Album Notes
The Nicki Denner Latin Jazz Trio brings the rhythmic intensity
of the Latin big band to the jazz piano trio. The result is unique,
both potent and subtle.

Featuring Nicki Denner on piano, Jennifer Vincent on bass,
Willie Martinez on drums, the trio has been performing in New York since 2001. As individual musicians they have appeared in the US and
abroad with many of the greats in jazz, pop and Latin music:
the Duke Elllington Orchestra, Betty Carter, Frank Wess, Sheila
E., Bobby Sanabria, Paquito D’Rivera, Chico O’Farill, Bebel Gilberto
and others.

In June 2006, they performed at the Rochester International Jazz
Festival, where they debuted music from their new CD, Moliendo
Café, which was also released this summer.

Moliendo Café features Denner's originals as well as arrangements for piano trio of classic salsa standards such as "Indestructible", by Ray Barretto and "Juan Pachanga"' by Ruben Blades. The recording also showcases the talents of Maurice Chestnut, a world renowned tap dancer, as a guest artist on one track.

Moliendo Café is Ms. Denner's third CD as a bandleader. Her
first two CDs, Don’t Just Stand There and El Médico de Coquí
(which spent six months on Latin Beat magazine's Top 20 Hit Parade)
are also available at online, at CD

"Nicki Denner's piano playing gets pretty goddamn caliente, whether she's extrapolating a Latin standard or taking listeners on jazzy jaunts into her lively originals." -Frank DeBlase, Rochester International Jazz Festival

"Editor's Pick: A totally cool piano trio record... The sound of the recording envelops you; the whole thing feels intimate. Denner herself is a super strong pianist, and her arrangements are full of rhythmic order; when she’s improvising she brings a ton of harmony and time to her blowing. The whole thing’s a study in time, and all its shadings. Highly Recommended."
-Peter Watrous,

"In my humble opinion, Denner's new release belongs on every Latin music lover's shelf, whether such aficionados lean toward Latin jazz or salsa!"
- Vicki Sola, Latin Beat Magazine

Wonderful Wonderful !!!
Nicki gets better all the time! This album really grooves. The piano work is adventurous, yet connected to the tradition. The band playes great - no overdubs here. You can truly hear them playing together! The Sound Engineering by Frank Fagnano sounds amazing!! Thank You Nicki

Gern Blandsden

Love this CD!
This CD is slammin'! I'm in love with Nicki's piano playing and the entire vibe of this recording. The tap dancing is an especially tasteful addition to this exceptional CD.

I can't wait for the next Nicki Denner release!
