"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

Join us for an all-star jazz party celebrating the international release of Sagebrush Rebellion, Dmitri Matheny's tenth album as a leader, on the Papillon/BluePort jazz label.

Celebrated for his warm tone, soaring lyricism and masterful technique, Matheny was first introduced to jazz audiences in the 1990s as the protégé of legendary flugelhornist Art Farmer. Matheny has since matured into "one of the jazz world's most talented horn players." SF Chronicle

Sagebrush Rebellion showcases new originals, jazz classics by Johnny Burke and Duke Ellington, and favorite compositions by Charlie Haden, Steve Swallow and Nat Adderley.

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