Matso Limtiaco Matso Limtiaco

Matso Limtiaco (b. 1963) majored in Music Education as an undergraduate. After a brief period teaching public school music, he earned his MA in music theory/composition at Washington State University in 1990. He spent six years teaching music at all levels from junior high band to university jazz ensembles, arranging music for his own groups and for a variety of local performers.

Although he no longer teaches music full-time, Matso continues to be active as a freelance composer, arranger, and performer in the Seattle area. His baritone saxophone work has anchored the Emerald City Jazz Orchestra saxophone section since 1994, and the band's two recordings (“Alive and Swinging” and “Come Rain or Come Shine”) feature his charts. He resides in Snohomish WA with his wife Melanie and sons Alex and A.J.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
