Carrying on the eclectic spirit of the Bay Area music scene that he grew up as a part of, San Francisco native and now NYC-based pianist/composer Matt Wong has quickly gained a reputation for his versatility and maturity in the world of jazz and beyond. Wong’s own original compositions and arrangements are a huge factor in his projects and performances, as well as others’; he has composed and arranged for groups including the Realistic Orchestra, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, the SFJAZZ High School All-Stars, the Oakland Symphony, the Next Generation Jazz Orchestra, Berklee Rainbow Band, and Berkeley’s Jazzschool Studio Band.
Wong makes his SFJAZZ debut as a leader featuring a dynamic sextet, performing a program of all original compositions that examine feelings and perspectives inspired by locations and around the world, while also breaking down the lines and placement of jazz, chamber music, and funk.
