Celebrated for his warm tone, soaring lyricism and masterful technique, American musician Dmitri Matheny is lauded as “the first breakthrough flugelhornist since Chuck Mangione” (San Jose Mercury News). An honors graduate of Interlochen Arts Academy and the Berklee College of Music, Dmitri has toured extensively as a soloist and bandleader throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. He has performed with a “who’s who” of jazz luminaries and has contributed to over 60 compact discs as a composer, arranger, producer, annotator or flugelhornist. Dmitri has released nine critically-acclaimed albums as a bandleader. He currently performs with Grant & Matheny, a chamber jazz duo directed by Portland, Oregon-based pianist Darrell Grant, and the Dmitri Matheny Group, “an all-star jazz band featuring some of the most accomplished musicians in the western United States” (All About Jazz).
