Matt Slocum

On After the Storm, award winning New York drummer and composer Matt Slocum fulfills upon the promise displayed on his critically acclaimed debut recording Portraits. Gerald Clayton (piano) and Massimo Biolcati (bass), longtime friends and musical collaborators, complete the trio in a set that showcases six new original compositions as well as “It’s Easy to Remember”, “Everything I Love”, and Slocum’s arrangement of Ravel’s “La Vallée des Cloches”. The recording, which took place immediately following a week long engagement at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola, highlights the emotional depth and imaginative sophistication of Slocum’s compositions as well as the trio’s tremendous musical growth and unique brand of intuitive exploration, interaction and empathy. At 29, Matt Slocum is quickly emerging as one of the leading double threat jazz artists of his generation

Matt Slocum: Trio Pacific, vol. 1

Read "Trio Pacific, vol. 1" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi

"In queste session--dice Matt Slocum--ero interessato a sviluppare una struttura compositiva più aperta, pensata per l'approccio estetico del trio. Questa formazione sembra adattarsi meglio all'interazione collettiva che all'affermazione di lunghi assoli individuali. È ancora un formato relativamente nuovo, essendo appena un anno che suoniamo in trio ma sento un'intensa connessione musicale, la più forte mai provata." ...

A lui è dedicato questo ambizioso CD, votato alla traduzione musicale della spiritualità degli indiani d'America. Vi predomina un'aura malinconica e riflessiva che attualizza l'eredità coltraniana lungo un tappeto sonoro circolare, sempre in mutazione. Le dodici parti ...
