The Jazz River | Sunday 7pm
Matthew was raised on the south side of Chicago and exposed to an incredibly rich array of music. His parents took him to see MJQ at age 10, and his first concert on his own, at age 14, was Muddy Waters, followed soon thereafter by the original Charles Lloyd Quartet, The Art Ensemble of Chicago, Magic Sam, and so many others. A professional researcher by trade, he applied those skills into becoming an amateur ethnomusicologist. A voracious reader and collector, he strives to share his appreciation for what all the music of the world has to offer KUVO listeners.
“…The music represents an ideal of what a social structure can be in a society. Where people can really be themselves and at the same time work together to create something that is unified and shared.” -Dave Holland.
Matthew is the host of The Jazz River, a cousin to the late great Scotty’s Origins-Orgy in Rhythm.
