Hey everyone. It’s been a long time since the last blog…
But that’s because I have a whole bunch of gigantic announcements to make.
This fall, I’ll release my new album A Bigger Celebration, which features Jerry Bergonzi on tenor sax, Bruce Gertz on bass, Richie Barshay on drums, and special guest Mark Zaleski on alto and soprano saxes!
And tomorrow (yes, tomorrow, July 17), the album’s first SINGLE will be released on iTunes! It’s the title track from the album (“A Bigger Celebration”). You can be the first on your block to own it! Check it out HERE tomorrow.
A Bigger Celebration is my tenth album as a leader. It’s a fun and upbeat jazz album with a couple of pop-influenced tunes. Some of the songs’ titles include “A Fast Car In Summer” and “Power Pop.” A Bigger Celebration is also the first album on which I play electronic keyboards (on two tunes). And there are some epic multi-part compositions.
You can view my new YouTube trailer for the album right HERE.
Stay tuned for exciting news about the album release of A Bigger Celebration and our Fall CD Release Concerts!
All this info will be on my newly updated and redesigned website. In the meantime, I hope you can come to these two concerts:

Saturday, September 28 – 2:30 PM. Berklee BeanTown Jazz Festival. Columbus Ave., Boston, MA – The Matt Savage Quartet with Bobby Watson. The quartet will feature the legendary Bobby Watson on alto sax, John Funkhouser on bass and Steve Silverstein on drums!
Hope to see you very soon,
