Welcome to the official website of jazz flugelhornist, composer, educator and recording artist Dmitri Matheny.
Celebrated for his warm tone, soaring lyricism and masterful technique, Dmitri Matheny was first introduced to jazz audiences in the 1990s as the protégé of Art Farmer. Matheny has since matured into “one of the jazz world’s most talented horn players” (SF Chronicle)...more
The Dmitri Matheny Group 2013 Tour continues through December, with performances in 50 cities throughout the Pacific Northwest, Desert Southwest and California Coast. The itinerary includes a diverse array of concert, night club and festival appearances as well as educational workshops and master classes for aspiring musicians.
Warm thanks to the Arizona Republic, All About Jazz and the San Francisco Chronicle for the coverage, and to KPLU Jazz Northwest for broadcasting the group's recent concert in Seattle.
Matheny's popular Jazz Noir project offers a fresh spin on familiar TV and movie themes (film noir, spy thrillers and crime dramas), plus a selection of new works, jazz classics and beloved standards from the Great American Songbook. Concert highlights include a Noir Medley of cinematic favorites and Matheny's original Crime Scenes suite, a dreamlike series of vignettes linked together with voiceover narrative in the hardboiled detective style of Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler.
Matheny's latest CD release is Grant & Matheny, an intimate "chamber jazz" project with longtime duo partner, pianist Darrell Grant. All 9 of Dmitri's albums (over 100 songs) are available now from CD Baby, iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and Carpe DM.
