Dmitri Matheny Group presents SONGS OF WONDER: The Stevie Wonder Songbook!
American singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Stevie Wonder is a former child prodigy who developed into one of the most creative musical figures of the late 20th century, mastering virtually every idiom of African-American popular music and synthesizing them all into a language all his own. The 69-year-old Grammy-winner created dozens of unforgettable hit songs, selling over 100 million records. Today he is widely acknowledged as one of music’s greatest living songwriters.
Flugelhornist Dmitri Matheny has been lauded as “one of the most emotionally expressive improvisers of his generation” (International Review of Music). An honors graduate of Berklee College of Music, Dmitri Matheny vaulted onto the jazz scene in the 1990s as the protégé of jazz legend Art Farmer. Since then he has garnered critical acclaim and a loyal international following, releasing eleven CDs and touring extensively throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. The San Francisco Chronicle calls Matheny “one of the jazz world’s most talented horn players.”
