The concert is part of Matheny’s 2014 100-city tour of the USA and will feature an all-star ensemble with Matheny on flugelhorn, Nick Manson on piano,T-Bone Sistrunk on bass and John Lewis on drums.
“The Dmitri Matheny Group is a cohesive and seamless unit,” writes All About Jazz, “serving up equal parts soulful expression, caressing phrases, imaginative asides, and dedicated lyricism.”
“Their music is a fertile landscape without boundaries,” writes the OaklandTribune,“earning Matheny and his cohorts a reputation as one of the most eclectic and daring ensembles on today’s jazz scene.”
Celebrated for his warm tone, soaring lyricism and masterful technique, Dmitri Matheny has been lauded as “the first breakthrough flugelhornist since Chuck Mangione” (San Jose Mercury News). First introduced to jazz audiences in the 1990s as the protégé of Art Farmer, Matheny has matured into “one of the jazz world’s most talented horn players” (San Francisco Chronicle), a leading figure on the international jazz scene and one of the most prolific musicians of his generation.
Matheny’s tenth album as a leader, Sagebrush Rebellion was released on August 9 on the BluePort Jazz/Papillon Recordings label. Recorded live, Sagebrush Rebellion captures Matheny at his best. Featuring the all-star rhythm section of Nick Manson piano, Justin Grinnell bass and Duncan Moore drums, the quartet showcases new originals, classics by Johnny Burke and Duke Ellington, and favorite selections by Charlie Haden, Steve Swallow and Nat Adderley.
According to Jim Merod of BluePort Jazz, “This is one of my favorite recordings…I hope listeners enjoy the depth and delicacy of these songs crafted with Dmitri’s flugelhorn mastery.” Pre-order Now
