The Dmitri Matheny Group ft. Jeff Shoup Cover

Dmitry Matheny and his all-star band featuring Michigan based drummer Jeff Shoup join forces for a fiery night of jazz highlighting the music of Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers! Flugelhornist Dmitri Matheny has been lauded as “one of the most emotionally expressive improvisers of his generation” (International Review of Music). An honors graduate of Berklee College of Music, Dmitri Matheny vaulted onto the jazz scene in the 1990s as the protégé of jazz legend Art Farmer. Since then he has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal international following, releasing eleven CDs and touring extensively throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. The San Francisco Chronicle calls Matheny “one of the jazz world’s most talented horn players.” The Dmitri Matheny Group is "an all-star jazz band featuring some of the most accomplished musicians in the western United States" (All About Jazz). Featuring Adam Harris on saxophones, Steve Christofferson on keys, Garrett Baxter on bass and special guest Jeff Shoup on drums.
