Matthew Garrison

Matthew Garrison was born June 2, 1970 in New York. Here he spent the first eight years of his life immersed in a community of musicians, dancers, visual artists and poets. After the death of his father Jimmy Garrison (John Coltrane’s bassist), his family relocated to Rome, Italy where he began to study piano and bass guitar. In 1988 Matthew returned to the United States and lived with his godfather Jack Dejohnette for two years. Here he studied intensively with both Dejohnette and bassist Dave Holland.

”Recalling Jaco and his legion of fretless followers, Garrison has remained the original, too busy forging ahead to look back at the pack... He has continued to experiment with and expand his composing and bass chops, as well as his quest to combine those elements with cutting-edge, computer-driven technology. Best of all, the pursuit has given him perspective.” by Chris Jisi, Bass Player Magazine cover story, Oct 2010 issue
