Jazz guitarist/composer, Matthew Stevens, is preparing for the release of his album Woodwork on May 26th via Whirlwind Recordings. An integral part of the NEXT Collective and his work with Christian Scott, Ben Williams, Esperanza Spaulding, Harvey Mason and others, Matthew Stevens is ready to present his own work via Woodwork featuring an all-star cast of musicians at his side including Grammy-nominated pianist Gerald Clayton, bassist Vicente Archer, drummer Eric Doob and percussionist Paulo Stagnaro.
From a past run of shows in March, Matthew Stevens is proud to present the live performance video to the song “Processional” which was shot at Toronto’s Victory Social Club. The performance starts at a dizzying pace with each player flexing their musicianship, breaking down just after the half-way point that will leave viewers/listeners in a trance. The performance features Eric Doob on drums and Ben Williams on bass.
