Alameda Free Library, Main Branch
1550 Oak St
Alameda, CA 94501

The third and final concert of the 2019 Live @ the Library season will feature the Dmitri Matheny Quintet.

A first for the Library “Live” performances, Dmitri Matheny is a flugelhornist, who often emphasizes beautiful melodic ballads. He will be accompanied by Charles McNeal, tenor sax; Matt Clark, piano; John Wiitala, bass; and Leon Joyce Jr., drums. First introduced to jazz audiences in the 1990s as the protégé of Art Farmer, who was one of the original jazz musicians to make the flugelhorn popular, Matheny has matured into “one of the jazz world’s most talented horn players” (San Francisco Chronicle). Matheny has received several prestigious music awards, including NW Instrumentalist of the Year. He is also a prolific composer and lyricist whose published compositions span the jazz, pop, symphonic, choral, chamber and world music genres.

This is a sold out event!
