Primary Instrument: Band/orchestra
Picture This is Jerome Monachino (guitar/voice), Peter Engisch (keys), Marcus Copening (drums), and Gary Matthews ( bass).
Since Picture This’ debut in 1993, the group has developed a loyal following and continues to push the boundaries of contemporary jazz. Immediately accessible, the group’s live performances are brimming with boundless energy and a certain synergy that demands your attention.
The group’s influences cover world beat artists to traditional, modern, contemporary and pop (Bruce Hornsby, Herbie Hancock, Pat Metheny, Chieli Minucci & Special EFX, Yellowjackets, and Mike Stern to name a few). But it’s their own take on this genre that sets them apart and makes them one of the up and coming jazz groups in the contemporary jazz world... It’s a refined melodic blend of the best in contemporary jazz....
