GRAMMY-nominated saxophonist and composer Melissa Aldana has garnered international recognition for her visionary work as a band leader, as well as her deeply meditative interpretation of language and vocabulary. She was recently signed with Blue Note Records and released her debut album with the historic label titled 12 Stars in March 2022. “Melissa Aldana is one of the foremost musician/composers of her generation,” says Blue Note President Don Was.

Melissa Aldana will perform with Pablo Menares on acoustic bass and Kush Abadey on drums. The concert includes an opening performance by the UMaine Jazz Ensemble.
