Things have been quite different this summer. Even thought I’m still living in Boston, I’ve started with a new schedule of private students and am continuing to work on my new solo album Matt Savage: Piano Voyages.
The Matt Savage Groove Experiment recently played in Cambridge, MA again (at an underground music venue called the “Lower Level”). It was the band’s eleventh show. But I’m going to switch gears again this fall for the Piano Voyages CD release tour. I’ll start the tour with a performance at Cambridge’s world-renowned jazz club, the Regattabar; this hometown show will also feature alto saxophonist Erena Terakubo.
In addition, I have to prepare for a short tour of the Rocky Mountains this weekend – first Albuquerque and then Denver. The Albuquerque performance will be my very first time in New Mexico. I’m excited to see this side of the Rocky Mountains, although I should get ready for potential 100-degree heat…
When I’m in Albuquerque on Saturday, I will be attending a 1 PM screening of Sound of Redemption: The Frank Morgan Story, before my 7 PM trio performance that night. I will be doing a Q&A/discussion about my score for this jazz documentary, as well as my recent musical projects. Click here for more information.
But this actually will not be my first trip out west this summer; I was in Canada’s Yukon this June. You can read more about that trip here.
It feels really great to be able to escape the city for a bit.
Enjoy the weather and stay cool, my friends…
