Matt Dusk Matt Dusk

Go big or go home. That might’ve been Matt Dusk’s mantra as he contemplated the making of his second album, Back in Town.. With impeccable taste to match his formidable talent, Dusk knows that style and sophistication•in everything from song selections and studio choices•are important factors that contribute to successful recordings.

The Toronto-born Matt Dusk will join Patrizio Buanne on his North American AEG Live tour this spring, which coincides with the Decca release of Dusk’s Back in Town on April 3rd. The 27-year-old crooner already had a sensational major-label debut under his belt with 2004’s Two Shots, which was partially recorded at London’s famous Abbey Road Studios with a 42-piece string section from the prestigious Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

With Back in Town Dusk pulled out all the stops. He recorded much of the album in Los Angeles, at the fabled Capitol Studio in Studio A•where the walls have resonated with the voices of singers such as Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin and Ella Fitzgerald. Then, as if that magical setting wasn’t enough, several renowned arrangers including Patrick Williams and Sammy Nestico were brought in to provide original arrangements for classic numbers like “More” and “As Time Goes By.” On top of that, the legendary Al Schmitt, winner of this year’s Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammy Awards, recorded and mixed all of the album’s big band tracks.

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
