Berklee BeanTown Jazz FestivalMatt Savage Quartet Featuring Bobby Watson
Matt Savage has been connected with some of the biggest names in jazz from the time he was first labeled a “jazz prodigy” at age 8. He has performed (on stage and in jam sessions) with the Ellington All Stars, Chaka Khan, Wynton Marsalis, Joshua Redman, the Bad Plus, Arturo O’Farrill, John Pizzarelli, Clark Terry, Chick Corea, Terri Lyne Carrington, and Erena Terakubo, just to name a few.
Saxophonist, composer, producer, and educator Bobby Watson grew up in Kansas City, Kansas. After he graduated from University of Miami in 1975, he moved to New York City, and soon found employment as musical director for Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. Watson launched his own group, Bobby Watson & Horizon, with bassist Curtis Lundy and drummer Victor Lewis, and they recorded for Blue Note and Columbia Records.
