Matt Ray

Pianist Matt Ray has been a fixture on the New York jazz scene for more than a decade. He has performed with many great artists, and at just about every venue in town including Smoke, the Jazz Standard, Small's, Birdland, the Blue Note, Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, Cleopatra's Needle, and the Knitting Factory.

Matt's first album as a leader, We Got It! climbed as high as #12 on the Jazz radio airplay charts, and was the 87th most played jazz CD in America for 2002. His new CD Lost In New York has recently been released. It is a trio record and features the bass playing of Danton Boller (Jazz Mandolin Project, Bennie Wallace, Roy Hargrove), and the drumming of Quincy Davis (Tom Harrell). Lost In New York is currently receiving airplay on jazz radio both nationwide and abroad.
