Matthew Parrish Quartet
Jazz Bassist Matthew Parrish, has “come into his own” as a sought after performer, arranger, composer, producer and instructor. Matt’s young bass career is grounded in Philadelphia, PA. He had the blessing, in his late teens and early twenties, of performing with Shirley Scott, Mickey Roker, Bobby Durham, Cecil Payne, Johnny Coles, Sylvia Simms, and others. Matthew went on to have the unforgettable experience of touring with legendary trombonist Al Grey. Matthew also has recorded with musicians such as Wynton Marsalis, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Paquito D’Rivera, Clark Terry, Etta Jones, James Williams, Harry “Sweets’’ Edison, James Newton, Miri Ben-Ari, and Houston Person. Matthew brings skills and swing as he puts his heart into every note he plays. He has a genuine warmth and loyalty to the music that transcends into every note, every tune, and every interaction with his fellow musicians.
