“Vibist Lupri's second album “Shadow of the Vibe" is an absolute jewel..." Larry Nai - Cadence, July 2000

“Lupri emerges as a another musician living up to his considerable potential... on this well -conceived cleanly executed program that comprises Lupri's own attractive compositions." Neil Tesser, Jazziz, Feb 2000

Born in Germany, Lupri grew up in Kansas and Alberta, Canada. He studied drums and began playing professionally as a teenager in blues, rock and country music bands, including Juno winner George Fox. In his early 20's, while studying music in college, he became fascinated with jazz vibraphone music from listening to a recording of the legendary Gary Burton. Lupri recollects, “It totally changed my whole approach to music. For the next five years, while I was still on the road with rock bands, I would practice my vibes every day in my hotel room." Having found a new musical expression with the vibes, he enrolled at the “Berklee College of Music"in Boston to study with his mentor Gary Burton. Lupriís debut CD “Window Up Window Down" (Chartmaker Jazz PDP1020) and “Shadow of the Vibe" both charted in the Top 40 Gavin and Top 15 CMJ Jazz Charts and #7 Chart Magazine Canada. Recent performances include the Litchfield Jazz Festival, MIX Festival at Foxboro Stadium, Boston Globe Jazz Festival, Quincy Festival, Knitting Factory in NYC, Top of the Senator in Toronto and CBC Montreal.

“Look out for promising young vibraphonist Matthias Lupri, a protťgť of Gary Burton." -Jazz For Dummies

“An enjoyable slice of advanced modern Jazz."- Al Merritt, UK Jazz London, Jazz Now

“ Lupri hits hard on the solos, and comps with warm glow when George Garzone steps out. On “Investion" the power is scary..." - John Barrett -- JazzUSA
