Matt Richards' "Trio" Now Available on CD Baby

Published:
Matt Richards Matt Richards' most recent release Trio is now available at CDBaby.com. The CD features Matt with his straight-ahead trio (Dave Kaczorowski - upright bass and Mike Morelli - drums) in a live performance at Chris' Jazz Cafe in Philadelphia PA.

“It was one of those 'right place at the right time' situations when we did this date," Matt reveals. “Mike was actually subbing for our regular drummer and we didn't have the chance to get any original material together--I had to calm my inner worry and decide to just go with it and trust myself and Dave and Mike."

Trio presents Matt's trio at their energized, interactive best as they burn through standards (Beautiful Love, Autumn Leaves), dive headfirst into major and minor key blues (Treat Style, Mr. P C), simmer through a ballad (Angel Eyes) and take one of Matt's signature pieces (Manha de Carnaval) through the paces. A solo acoustic rendering of the Lennon/McCartney love song (If I Fell) closes brings the album to a mellow close.
