"Dmitri Matheny is a jazz treasure. The lyrical Matheny has impressive chops, but it's his warmth and soulfulness that win you over." -All Music Guide

Renowned flugelhornist Dmitri Matheny will present a salute to The Great American Songbook on Sunday, Aug. 18, 3 p.m., at Sedona Jazz at the Church.

The concert will showcase favorite Broadway and Hollywood hits of the 1920s though the 60s, including works by George Gershwin, Richard Rodgers, Cole Porter, Harold Arlen, Hoagy Carmichael, Duke Ellington and more.

The event is part of the Dmitri Matheny Group's 50-city tour of the western United States, a diverse array of concert, nightclub and festival appearances throughout the Desert Southwest, California Coast and Pacific Northwest.

The Dmitri Matheny Group, directed by flugelhornist and composer Matheny, features virtuoso pianist Nick Manson and rock steady bassist T-Bone Sistrunk. "An all-star jazz band featuring some of the most accomplished musicians in the western United States," writes All About Jazz, "the Dmitri Matheny Group is a cohesive and seamless unit, serving up equal parts soulful expression, caressing phrases, imaginative asides, and dedicated lyricism."

"Their music is a fertile landscape without boundaries," writes the Oakland Tribune, "earning Matheny and his cohorts a reputation as one of the most eclectic and daring ensembles on today's jazz scene."

Celebrated for his warm tone, soaring lyricism and masterful technique, American musician Dmitri Matheny has been lauded as "the first breakthrough flugelhornist since Chuck Mangione" (San Jose Mercury News).

Matheny is an honors graduate of Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan and the Berklee College of Music, Boston. First introduced to jazz audiences in the 1990s as the protégé of the legendary Art Farmer, Matheny has matured into "one of the jazz world's most talented horn players" (San Francisco Chronicle), touring internationally and releasing nine critically acclaimed CDs.

Sedona Jazz at the Church, part of the music ministry of Saint Luke's Episcopal Church, offers excellent jazz concerts at affordable ticket prices for audiences of all ages.
