“Dmitri Matheny is a jazz treasure. The lyrical Matheny has impressive chops, but it’s his warmth and soulfulness that win you over.”—All Music Guide
This season the DMITRI MATHENY GROUP honors Henry Mancini’s 100th birthday with new arrangements of his classic hits Charade, Days of Wine and Roses, Dreamsville, Moon River, Mr. Lucky, Peter Gunn, Pink Panther, Romeo and Juliet, Royal Blue, Slow Hot Wind, Two For The Road, and more!
Directed by flugelhornist/composer Dmitri Matheny (“one of the most emotionally expressive improvisers of his generation”—International Review of Music), the DMG has developed an engaging repertoire and a strong international following. The group's signature sound pleases both crowds and critics, balancing fresh, original works with familiar jazz classics, hard bop, West Coast cool, and selections from the DMG's 12 critically acclaimed CDs.
“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.”—All About Jazz
