Matt Renzi is a multi-reedist, best known for his tenor sax playing and clarinet (his two main horns), but who has a knack for picking up other instruments as needed such as oboe, piccolo and flute. His New York City-based trio has been well-recognized for its group improv and composition and has recorded several CDs. Performing internationally, it tends to push the limits of music that is simultaneously structured and wide open.
AAJ Contributor Blaine Fallis interviewed Renzi after reviewing the reedman's latest release, Lunch Special (Three P's, 2009), querying the him about the writing process, lyrical improvisation in a free context, as well as present and future plans.
