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 from the Pat Metheny Group 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 the Bowery Poetry Club on Tuesday August 21st. This is the warm up gig before their performance at the prestigious Chicago Jazz Festival. The stellar line up will include Satya Gummuluri (vocals), Sean Wayland (keys), Maurice Brown (trumpet), Jonathan Kreisberg (guitar), Adriano Santos(Drums) and Geraghty playing bass.
