Dmitri Matheny Group
"An all-star jazz band featuring some of the most accomplished musicians in the western United States, the DMITRI MATHENY GROUP is a cohesive and seamless unit, serving up equal parts soulful expression, caressing phrases, imaginative asides, and dedicated lyricism." All About Jazz
Directed by musician/composer Dmitri Matheny ("the first breakthrough flugelhornist since Chuck Mangione" San Jose Mercury News), the DMG has developed an engaging repertoire and a strong international following. The group's signature sound pleases both crowds and critics, balancing fresh, original works with familiar jazz classics, hard bop, west coast cool and beloved standards from the Great American Songbook.
The band has also garnered praise for its youth and family programming. Dr. Herb Wong writes, "As past President of the International Association of Jazz Educators, I'm gratified that the Dmitri Matheny Group has made jazz education a prominent and vital part of their busy season."
"Their music is a fertile landscape without boundaries," writes the Oakland Tribune, "earning Matheny and his cohorts a reputation as one of the most eclectic and daring ensembles on today's jazz scene."
