Matt Savage – Welcome Home

My next album, Welcome Home, will be released November 9, 2010, with a CD release concert at the Regattabar in Boston on the 10th (plus a big radio interview on WICN on the 8th!)

Recorded in Brooklyn, NY at Systems Two Recording Studio in July 2010, Welcome Home features the legendary Bobby Watson on alto sax, Jeremy Pelt on trumpet, Joris Teepe (John Funkhouser on some songs) on bass and Peter Retzlaff (also Yoron Israel) on drums. The album is all original compositions, recorded with a trio and (for the first time) a quintet!

This album is all about the different places I’ve seen in my life (my organic farm in New Hampshire, New York City, Berklee College of Music in Boston). No matter where I am, I still feel at home, and that’s what this album describes. The album changes moods many times, ranging from “epic” piano ballads to trio pieces to upbeat quintet showcases. The first single from the album will be “Big Apple Blues,” a funky piece (featuring some fun trumpet/sax/piano trades) from my five-part “Big Apple Suite.”
