Dmitri Matheny Quartet

  • Cigar Bar 850 Montgomery Street San Francisco, CA, 94133 United States (map)

Acclaimed for his warm tone, soaring lyricism and masterful technique, flugelhornist Dmitri Matheny has been lauded as “one of the most emotionally expressive improvisers of his generation” (International Review of Music). An honors graduate of the Berklee College of Music, Matheny vaulted onto the jazz scene in the 90s as the protégé of jazz legend Art Farmer. Since then he has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal international following, touring extensively across 19 countries. Matheny has released 11 albums as a leader and has over 100 recordings to his credit. His latest is Jazz Noir, a fresh spin on crime jazz, film noir movie themes and timeless classics. The San Francisco Chronicle calls Matheny “one of the jazz world’s most talented horn players.”

Dmitri Matheny is a jazz treasure. The lyrical Matheny has impressive chops, but it’s his warmth and soulfulness that win you over.
