The Matt Geraghty Project, led by bassist and composer Matt Geraghty, is an ambitious modern musical effort revealing exciting and cutting-edge cross-cultural concepts. The global texture of the group is cultivated by Indian vocalist Satya Gummuluri who sings in Urdu, Hindi, and Punjab and Geraghty's compositions that blend jazz, rock, funk and music from Brazil, Spain, India and North Africa. Geraghty will be performing music from his 3rd CD Passport which features 6-time grammy award winning drummer Paul Wertico and grammy award winning harmonica man Howard Levy of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones fame.
Geraghty has performed his signature world-jazz blend internationally and will bring his global groove to Bowery Poetry Club on Sunday March 2nd. The stellar line up will include Satya Gummuluri (vocals), Sean Wayland(keys), Jonathan Kreisberg(guitar), Oscar Feldman(sax), Adriano Santos(Drums) and Geraghty playing bass.

American bassist Matt Geraghty has opened the door on a surprising sound world, bringing together Indian singer Satya Gummuluri, an occasionally rock-guitar aesthetic from Steve Ramsdell, some rhythmic complexity, and the extraordinary harmonica playing of Howard Levy." --Sydney Morning Herald, Feb. 2008
