Matt Giella

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.

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.
