Born: September 16, 1988
Hailing from New York, Matt Giella is an alumni of the Hunter College music program where he studied composition, theory and performance in both the classical and jazz realms. His own group, the aptly titled, Matt Giella Quartet is finally underway, carving out a name for itself in Gotham's diverse music scene. As an outlet for his own compositions, and overall new musical ideas, the Matt Giella Quartet, consisting of Matt Giella on trumpet, Leo Freire on drums, Joel Pixley-Fink on bass and Alex DeZenzo on piano, seeks to remain true to past musical ideals regarding a traditional jazz quartet, while simultaneously taking a modern, more approachable route.
