This is my first quartet video in a while and I’m really proud of what I have so far. This is a brand-new original composition of mine called “The Savage Life Chose Me.” It was written at the end of 2019 and performed a couple of times before the lockdown hit.
I really wanted to share this one with you, so here it is. It’s a virtual quartet video (spliced together from four separate recordings) and I am extremely proud of my bandmates’ work on this one. “The Savage Life Chose Me” is what we jazz cats call a “burner” – a very fast tune influenced by the bebop classics of the ’40s and ’50s.
Matt Savage – keyboard; Mark Zaleski – alto saxophone; Max Ridley – bass; Zachary King – drums
