Jazz legend Dave Brubeck calls him amazing." Chick Corea says he's delightful and inspiring." Sax legend Jimmy Heath calls him the future of jazz." His talent has been compared to that of Bach and Mozart.
You can hear what all the fuss is about on May 20, as 13-year-old jazz prodigy Matt Savage performs in a benefit concert to help support arts education and outreach programs in Palm Beach County. Wellington-based non-profit ArtStart is proud to present The Matt Savage Trio in a 2 p.m. matinee performance in the Kravis Center's Persson Hall on Saturday, May 20, 2006. Tickets are $75 and are on sale now 561-791-2861 or http://www.ArtStartInc.org.
Savage recently won the ASCAP Young Composers Award (June 2005) and will be in New York on April 29, 2006 to perform some original, previously un-played and unrecorded Duke Ellington songs at the Duke Ellington Birthday Celebration at the Museum of Modern Art.

Savage (then 10 years old) wowed audiences for two nights at the Kravis in January, 2003, and the May concert marks his first return to the area. The concert will serve as a fund raiser to help expand ArtStart's arts education and outreach programs in Palm Beach County.
Jazz great Dave Brubeck recently said of Matt: I was amazed at how talented he is... I keep track of young talent in kids, and he's the first one that I met that young that was THAT talented."
