Matthias Lupri (born Germany '64) grew up in Manhattan, Kansas and Alberta, Canada. Starting on drums at the age of 12, he played professionally throughout his teens and early 20's around Canada, including work with Canadian Juno award country singer George Fox and hard rock bands Full Circle and LA Roxx.

Read "Metalix" reviewed by John Kelman


While Same Time Twice (Summit, 2002) found vibraphonist Matthias Lupri emerging as a noteworthy contemporary jazz composer, Transition Sonic (Summit, 2004) represented a significant compositional leap.

Matthias Lupri: Transition Sonic

Read "Transition Sonic" reviewed by Jim Santella


Vibraphonist Matthias Lupri has always captured the essence of straight-ahead jazz at its best. He provides a groove over which his bands improvise in the classic tradition.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
