TCB, 2001, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Bebop
O’s Notes: Matt is one of the finest young pianists on the jazz scene today. His quintet does a fine job of playing his compositions, especially bassist Gregory Ryan, The 10 bop tunes are relaxed in a mature way, almost disguising the explosive dynamics of Fries. This is most notable on “Phineas”. There is a lot to enjoy here.
