I’m so excited to announce the Matt Savage Groove Experiment’s second EP, out December 2nd!  This sextet album is called The Groove Reawakens, and it features both original fusion tunes and jazz-funk classics.  You can purchase The Groove Reawakens at our online store page.

I am also still teaching at the Longy School of Music of Bard College, Saint Anselm College, Bunker Hill Community College, and Community Music Center of Boston.  Things have been busy here, so I am definitely looking forward to the winter break.

Matt Savage Groove Experiment Splash Variations Released December 7, 2018

Splash Variations is the debut EP of the Matt Savage Groove Experiment, the new jazz fusion project from pianist/composer Matt Savage. Half of the tunes from this new band are instrumental, and half are vocal – but there’s also a tune where the entire lyrics are just “Splash!”

Nine musicians in total are featured on this release - a core instrumental quintet plus several special guests. The group is also augmented by vocalist Robbie Pate, who appears on two tracks, including a “funkified” version of the classic standard “All the Things You Are.”

The medley of “#SPLASH” and “Splash in G Major” forms the centerpiece of the album, while “Arigato” is a touching jazz waltz tribute to a recently departed drummer. The concluding track, “IDGAF,” is a long instrumental jam that features a distorted guitar solo, a trombone solo, and Matt Savage on both piano and electric piano.

Splash Variations is the thirteenth release from Savage Records, and the start of a fresh new sound from Matt Savage. The Groove Experiment will also be touring in the next few months to accompany the release of the new album.
