MATT SAVAGE – officially an “autistic savant” whose musical genius was recognized by Dave Brubeck when he was 8 years old, Matt has grown into a high-functioning adult who received his Master’s degree from the Manhattan School of Music in 2015 on his 23rd birthday. A pianist and composer of the highest rank, Matt has headlined at festivals both here and abroad as well as the Kennedy Center and legendary NYC clubs Birdland, Jazz Standard, The Blue Note, and Iridium, and any Jazz musician would love to have his resume of radio and TV appearances: NPR’s All Things Considered and Piano Jazz with Marian McPartland, the Today Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, and the Late Show with David Letterman.

Following his first ever solo recording, Matt Savage: Piano Voyages, which resulted in some nice solo gigs at the Canadian Jazz Festivals as well as the Portland Jazz Festival in Oregon and the Earshot Jazz Fest in Seattle,Matt has two new recordings out in 2023: The Groove Awakens, a new EP with his fusion band The Matt Savage Groove Experiment, and The Whole Package, featuring his very impressive acoustic quartet with Mark Zaleski on alto sax, Greg Loughman on bass, and Zachary King on drums.  For more on Matt’s unique and compelling journey please visit his website:
