The Dmitri Matheny Group stop by Detroit's historic Cliff Bell's on Friday, April 25, 2014 for a night of world class jazz. This event will highlight "Jazz Noir", a fresh take on movie themes from film noir, spy thrillers and underworld crime dramas. The evening will also highlight new works, jazz classics, and revered songs from the great American songbook. Known for his warm tone, lyricism and technique, The San Jose Mercury News called Dmitri Matheny “the ﬁrst breakthrough ﬂugelhornist since Chuck Mangione”
Matheny's 2014 tour sees him hit 100 cities including 14 performances in the state of Michigan. Matheny is an honors graduate of Michigan's very own Interlochen Arts Academy and Boston's Berklee College of Music. Matheny, who is currently based out of San Francisco and Phoenix, will share the stage with Marcus Elliot on tenor saxophone, Kurt Krahnke on bass, Corey Kendrick on piano and Sean Dobbins on drums.
Website, Allaboutjazz.com, said of this lineup:
“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.”
