From events on Friday

“Matt Clohesy on bass is an Aussie by birth and a New Yorker by affinity (since 2001). Having mixed with the best in Australia, including with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, it didn’t take long for him to be working with some of the best young musicians stateside. The list is long and he’s been ‘in’ with some of the foremost modern interpreters of jazz today, including; Gretchen Parlato, Seamus Blake, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Geoff Keezer, Ingrid Jensen, David Kikoski, Donny McCaslin, Joel Frahm and Eric Alexander”
