Saxophonist and composer Matt Garrison, a native New Yorker, has been on the NYC jazz scene since 1997. After taking an interest in music at an early age, his path eventually led him to jazz and improvization. He cultivated the necessary tools to become a professional musician at The Purchase Conservatory of Music and has since shared the stage with jazz luminaries such as Adam Nussbaum, Andy Laverne, Todd Coolman, Ray Vega, Jon Cowherd, Eliot Zigmund, and Dennis Irwin. Garrison's debut album "Familiar Places" garnered critical acclaim and peaked at #13 on the CMJ Jazz Radio Chart. "Blood Songs", Garrison's sophomore record, was released in May of 2012 and received glowing reviews. Patchwork, his third and latest record was released in April of 2014 and can be found at his website www.mattgarrisonmusic.com or from your favorite way of downloading music.
