Matt Page

Reliable and versatile, Matt brings something fresh to the table every time he takes the bandstand. Matt's approach to jazz drumming seems most influenced by the swinging tradition of those like Ed Thigpin, Mel Lewis and mentor Jeff Hamilton however, there is no doubt Matt possesses a sound all his own. In 2005, Matt graduated from Musicians Institute in Hollywood California. While studying in the Los Angeles area, Matt had many opportunities to learn from and perform with some of the best musicians in jazz music today. Since returning to Seattle, Matt's personable, kind demeanor has led to his demand as a contributor to the local jazz scene, as well as an educator within community schools. Most recently, Matt has been working as a sideman for various Seattle based groups including The Steve Alboucq Quartet, the Chris Morton Trio and the Reuel Lubag Trio.

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.
