Mike Moreno

Mike Moreno

Originally from Houston, Texas, Mike began studying music formally at the Houston High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, a school renowned for its musical alumni, which includes such luminaries as Jason Moran, Robert Glasper, Kendrick Scott and Eric Harland.

Over the years Mike has toured and performed with The Joshua Redman Elastic Band, Stefon Harris Sonic Creed, Lizz Wright Band, Nicholas Payton Quartet, Me’Shell N’Degeocello, Jason Moran, Terence Blanchard, Robert Glasper, Gretchen Parlato, Aaron Parks Quartet, Greg Osby, Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz At Lincoln Center Orchestra, and Jeff “Tain” Watts.

With his own projects Mike has toured and recorded his original music with high critical acclaim.  Nate Chinen of the New York Times and Jazztimes Magazine describes “There are many other guitarists out there pushing towards a modern ideal, but none with the precise coordinates that Mike Moreno has charted.” 

In 2007, Mike released his debut recording as a leader Between The Lines, which Nate Chinen deemed in The New York Times as one of his top 10 Jazz albums of 2007.  He recorded his second and third albums, Third Wish (2008) and First In Mind (2011), for European Jazz label Criss-Cross Records.  Mike returned to producing his records on his own with World Culture Music for Another Way (2012), which was chosen by iTunes for the Best of 2012 list. His most recent recording Lotus was just released at the end of 2015.
