Event Description

Born in Germany, Matthias Lupri grew up in Kansas and Alberta and was introduced to jazz vibes after hearing a Gary Burton album, finding a new musical expression. "Hearing Gary Burton totally changed my whole approach to music," he says. Matthias eventually enrolled at Berklee College of Music to study with Burton. Since graduating, Lupri's jazz groups have appeared at clubs and festivals throughout North America and Europe, including JazzFest International 2002 in Victoria.

The brilliant vibraphonist has released three acclaimed CDs including the excellent Same Time Twice (Summit) with Mark Turner and Kurt Rosenwinkel.

Joining Lupri's group is New York-based, new member of the Pat Metheny Group, trumpeter Cuong Vu. Considered to be "one of the most distinctive stylists on New York's downtown music scene" (Down Beat), Cuong Vu has been garnering rave reviews as one of the leaders of a new generation of innovative musicians. Other members of the group appearing in Victoria include Nate Radley guitar, Thomson Kneeland bass, Jordan Perlson drums.

In conjunction with the Matthias Lupri Group's performance in Victoria, all members of the band will participate in conducting a workshop/clinic at the Esquimalt High Band Annex (Nov.19, 3 - 4:30pm) for area music students, as part of the Victoria Jazz Society's "Student Outreach Program". Registration for this workshop is free - please contact the Victoria Jazz Society office at 388-4423 to register. Space for this workshop is limited, and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
