About the Event
Mysterious, melancholy, and menacing, Jazz Noir with Dmitri Matheny offers a fresh spin on crime jazz, film noir, and timeless classics. Matheny is a prolific composer and lyricist whose published compositions span the jazz, pop, symphonic, choral, chamber, and world music genres. He leads the Dmitri Matheny Group, “an all-star jazz band featuring some of the most accomplished musicians in the western United States” (All About Jazz).
Celebrated for his warm tone, soaring lyricism, and masterful technique, Matheny has been lauded as “one of the most emotionally expressive improvisers of his generation” (International Review of Music).
