Jazz star Matheny visits Wind Rose Cellars

The versatile and acclaimed jazz musician Dmitri Matheny is making a stop in Sequim next week — and the admission rate can’t be beat.

Wind Rose Cellars, 143 W. Washington St., presents a rare free performance by Matheny at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, July 1.

The appearance, part of a 100-city tour of the United States, showcases selections from Matheny’s latest album, “Jazz Noir,” in what he calls a “fresh spin on crime jazz, film noir and timeless classics.”

The Dmitri Matheny Group features George Radabaugh on piano, Ted Enderle bass and Matheny on flugelhorn.

“An all-star jazz band featuring some of the most accomplished musicians in the western United States,” writes All About Jazz. “The Dmitri Matheny Group is a cohesive and seamless unit, serving up equal parts soulful expression, caressing phrases, imaginative asides and dedicated lyricism.”

“Their music is a fertile landscape without boundaries, earning Matheny and his cohorts a reputation as one of the most eclectic and daring ensembles on today’s jazz scene,” the Oakland Tribune notes.

Acclaimed for his tone, lyricism and technique, Matheny has been lauded as “one of the most emotionally expressive improvisers of his generation” (International Review of Music). An honors graduate of Berklee College of Music in Boston, Matheny vaulted onto the jazz scene in the 1990s as the protégé of jazz legend Art Farmer. Since then he has garnered acclaim and an international following, releasing 11 CDs and touring extensively throughout the United States, Europe and Asia.
