About Berta Moreno:

Berta Moreno possesses the sound of wisdom, the warmth of spirituality, and the sparkle of imagination. - Steve Wilson

"Moreno is a highly thoughtful and precise soloist, with well-planned statements that don't waste any notes." - All About Jazz

Berta Moreno is a multi-awarded jazz saxophonist, composer, bandleader, and educator from Spain, based in New York City. She has captured the attention of audiences and garnered recognition from both the US and European press. Critics often describe her as "Driven and Determined" - Downbeat Magazine, "a storyteller" - WBGO, and "a highly thoughtful and precise soloist, with well-planned statements that don't waste any notes" - All About Jazz.

With an extensive career, she has toured and performed as both a bandleader and sidewoman at leading jazz festivals, including the North Sea Jazz and TD James Moody Jazz Festivals, and at major venues and theatres, TV, and radio programs in Europe and the US, including NPR, WBGO, NJPAC, Lantaren Venster, and The Kimmel Center.

She has shared the stage with some of the most established jazz musicians, including Arturo O'Farrill, Steve Wilson, Troy Roberts, Francisco Mela, Shai Maestro, Manuel Valera, Edsel Gomez, Ralph Alessi, and Santi Debriano.

After moving to New York, Berta released her debut album "Little Steps," which won a Global Music Award Gold Medal for Best Jazz Album in 2017, and was nominated for Best Jazz Album by the 16th Independent Music Awards (US) and The MIN Music Awards (Spain).

In 2021, she released "Tumaini," her sophomore album, which was nominated as one of the TOP 20 Best Albums of 2021 by NPR Alt. Latino. Her composition "Karibu" was a finalist in the prestigious John Lennon International Songwriting Contest for Best Jazz Composition in 2021.

She is deeply involved in the Jazz, Latin, and World Music scenes, both as a performer and composer, and teaches at organizations such as MMC in partnership with Columbia University and the Afro-Latin Jazz Alliance in New York.
