Matt Savage, age 29, has had a remarkable 20-year professional career as a jazz musician, bandleader and composer with ensembles of different size. He’s played with some of the biggest names in jazz, including Chick Corea, the Ellington All Stars, Chaka Khan, and Wynton Marsalis. Along the way, he’s recorded twelve albums as leader and one as collaborator. He is a Bösendorfer piano artist. As a composer, Matt has garnered respect and recognition. He composed and recorded the score for a full-length documentary film, Sound of Redemption: The Frank Morgan Story. Additionally, Savage wrote almost all the songs on his twelve albums. Matt’s latest project is the Matt Savage Groove Experiment’s debut EP, Splash Variations, which was released on December 7, 2018, and was accompanied by a CD release tour in early 2019.
