Award-winning pianist Matt King brings a trio featuring bassist Ratzo Harris and drummer Pete MacDonald to NJ's premier jazz club, Shanghai Jazz.  Expect jazz classics from Monk, Mingus, Golson, & Strayhorn et al., selections from the Great American Songbook, some Brazilian jazz, AND...most importantly...the UN-expected.  Don't miss this fun evening of jazz (not to mention some amazing Asian cuisine!)

One of the most exciting pianists in jazz today, Matt has toured and/or recorded with Rufus Reid, Benny Golson, Billy Hart, Dave Stryker, Vic Juris, Joe Morello, and Charles McPherson, Nilson Matta, Claudio Roditi, Leny Andrade, and Claudia Villela. Matt has toured extensively with jazz-rock group Blood Sweat & Tears. His performance at Shanghai Jazz in July to celebrate his newest cd, Monk in Brazil left our audience on its feet, cheering and begging him not to leave the piano.
