SEQUIM — Wind Rose Cellars will present a free performance by renowned jazz artist Dmitri Matheny at 7:30 p.m. Saturday.
The appearance, part of a 100-city tour of the United States, will showcase selections from Matheny’s latest album, “Jazz Noir,” a fresh spin on crime jazz, film noir and timeless classics.
The Dmitri Matheny Group features George Radabaugh on piano, Ted Enderle on bass and the leader 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.”
The Oakland Tribune agreed: “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.”
Matheny has been lauded as “one of the most emotionally expressive improvisers of his generation” by the 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 released 11 CDs and toured extensively throughout the United States, Europe and Asia.
