Matt Savage Trio – Groovin’ on Mount Everest (2002)

Matt Savage – piano
John Funkhouser – bass
Steve Silverstein – drums

Groovin’ On Mount Everest is The Matt Savage Trio’s first studio recording.  It contains over an hour of original compositions by 9-year-old pianist/leader Matt Savage, along with two standards by jazz greats Duke Ellington (Satin Doll) and Harburg/Arlen (Somewhere Over The Rainbow).  Groovin’ On Mount Everest is turning the jazz world on its ear.  Matt has thrown a curveball, stunning jazz lovers with the maturity and creativity of his compositions.  He’s a more advanced pianist.  Listen to the CD, realize that Matt is still nine years old at the time of this recording, shake your head in disbelief, and listen again.
