Dmitri Matheny

The soulful sound of Dmitri Matheny’s horn has garnered praise from critics and audiences alike, drawing frequent comparisons to Miles Davis, Chet Baker and – not surprisingly – to Art Farmer. Upon Farmer’s passing in 1999, Matheny acquired his mentor’s copper-bell flugelhorn.  Today, he leads the Dmitri Matheny Group, an all-star jazz band featuring some of the most accomplished musicians in the western United States. His discography lists more than 120 albums on which he appears as a composer, arranger, producer, annotator or flugelhorn soloist. Matheny’s most ambitious composition to date is “Spiritu Sancto,” the New Millennium Mass, a monumental sacred work scored for chorus, organ, percussion, brass quintet, jazz ensemble and gospel soloist, “Spiritu Sancto” received its world premiere on the dawn of the new millennium at St. Domenic’s Cathedral in San Francisco. Throughout his professional career as a concert and recording artist, Matheny has distinguished himself as a dedicated educator, community leader and advocate for jazz and the arts. Show starts 6 p.m. No cover.
