Matt Politano    (3 votes)
Ask any jazz musician about pianist Matt Politano and all would jump to universally acknowledge his sheer mastery of his instrument and of jazz. Matt is without a doubt one of the busiest and hardest working musicians in Southern California. Originally a trumpeter playing in the prestigious One O’Clock Lab band at the University of North Texas, Matt made the decision to switch to piano and transferred to the Manhattan School of Music where he studied under pianist Garry Dial. Since graduating and moving back to California he has become one of the best on the West Coast known for being a transcendental improviser. He explores music with such artistry and imagination while still showing a deep respect for the beauty of a melody.

Matt has worked with many artists including Benny Green, John Clayton, Chris Potter, Walter Smith III, Jane Monheit, Sara Gazarek, Scott Weiland, Tom Scott, Bob Brookmeyer, Carol Kay, Kathleen Grace, Perry Smith, Kevin Kanner, Tom “Bones” Malone, Sam Minaie, Hamilton Price, Nate Wood, Robby Marshall, Peter Gallagher, and Clayton Cameron. In addition to his performing schedule, Matt is on faculty at Mt. San Antonio College, performs as part of Jazz at Lincoln Center, giving youth concerts through out Los Angeles, and maintains his own private studio.

Rounding out the Trio are superb local bassist John Kolivas, and young star drummer Ian Wacksman. Rumor is that Abe Lagrimas, Jr. will be guesting for part of the show.
