Matt Lavelle

Trumpet and Alto Clarinet player, composer and musical storyteller Matt Lavelle is a key member of the downtown music community in NYC. Playing Jazz in NYC since 1993, Lavelle has toured Europe 6 times to date. He began his music career with Hildred Humphries, a swing era veteran who played with Count Basie and Billie Holiday. In 2005 Lavelle began study with jazz legend Ornette Coleman, which had a huge transformational impact on him and led to his adding the alto clarinet as another powerful voice. Lavelle was also instrumental in the recent resurgence of Jazz man Giuseppi Logan, an underground legend of the ‘60's who had been missing for over 30 years, playing on and producing his comeback record.
