Original music and tunes by Roy Hargrove, Christian Scott, Kanye West, and J Dilla, alongside classic jazz standards, ballads and burners.
The Atlantic made Sueños a centerpiece of a heavy-duty feature in their “Saturday Night in America” video series – check this link at the 2:10 mark as Noah’s trumpet drifts out from the doorway of Oakland’s 15th Street Naming Gallery, and ride it out, then loop back and ride it through.

Sueños has performed at the Fillmore Street Jazz Festival in SF and the PDX Jazz Festival in Portland, as well as at secret shows curated by SOFAR Sounds SF, SOFAR Sounds Portland, and SOFAR Sounds New York.
