Matt will be presenting his utterly unique mix of original songs; re-imagined, beyond-obscure gems culled from a century of American Popular song; and, of course, his lauded guitar playing, which owes its thrills and chills to widespread theft from hot jazz and country shredders, ragtime and stride piano, and bel canto plectrumists alike. Matt will be joined by longtime cohort, bassist Danton Boller, who has worked with Roy Hargrove, Jon Fishman, Robert Glasper, Ricki Lee Jones etc.
"Jazz musicians aren’t supposed to write lyrics that good… Bands like this are why you move to New York.” - THE VILLAGE VOICE “A present day ironist with a prewar (first world war that is) heart” – THE NEW YORKER “recalls a time when instrumental virtuosity, harmonic sophistication, bucolic storysongs, and a straightforward emotional delivery were not mutually exclusive” – ACOUSTIC GUITAR
