Celebrated for his warm tone, soaring lyricism and masterful technique, American musician DMITRI MATHENY has been lauded as “the first breakthrough flugelhornist since Chuck Mangione" [San Jose Mercury News].

First introduced to jazz audiences in the 1990s as the protégé of Art Farmer, Matheny has matured into "one of the jazz world's most talented horn players" [San Francisco Chronicle], a leading figure on the international jazz scene and one of the most prolific musicians of his generation.

Born on Christmas Day, 1965 in in Nashville, Tennessee, Dmitri was raised in Georgia and Arizona. Attracted to his father’s collection of jazz and classical LP records, Dmitri began piano lessons at age 5 and switched to the trumpet at age 9.

Young Dmitri loved to perform and spent much of his childhood on stage, but he did not become serious about music until his teens, when he fell in love with the flugelhorn and left home in search of formal musical training.

Matheny attended the prestigious Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan, then the Berklee College of Music, Boston, graduating magna cum laude in 1989.

After private studies with Carmine Caruso in New York City, Matheny became the protégé of the legendary Art Farmer, beginning a formative relationship that lasted over a decade.

Farmer, “the bebop master who defined the sound of the flugelhorn in modern jazz” [All Music Guide], was Matheny’s public champion and private mentor. Generously sharing his wisdom, experience and influence, it was Farmer who encouraged Dmitri to put away the trumpet and devote himself exclusively to the "Big Horn."

Under Farmer’s tutelage on flugelhorn Matheny emerged as a promising new voice in jazz. “Art Farmer’s role in the early success of Dmitri Matheny cannot be overstated,” observed writer and historian Phil Elwood. “Without Art, there could be no Dmitri.”

At 29, after launching a busy recording career on the West Coast, Matheny made his New York debut at the Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall, then began touring internationally.

The soulful sound of his horn garnered praise from critics and audiences alike, drawing frequent comparisons to Miles Davis, Chet Baker and--not surprisingly--to Art Farmer. Upon Farmer’s passing in 1999, Matheny acquired his mentor’s copper-bell flugelhorn.

Today, Dmitri Matheny performs most frequently with GRANT & MATHENY, the chamber jazz duo directed by Oregon-based pianist Darrell Grant, and leads the DMITRI MATHENY GROUP, an all-star ensemble featuring some of the most accomplished jazz artists in the western states.

Matheny has toured extensively as a soloist and bandleader throughout the United States, Europe and Asia. He has traveled to 19 countries and has had the honor of performing with many motown and popular music acts including the Temptations, Martha Reeves, Fabian, the Four Tops, Bobby Vinton, Sandy Patty, Bobby Rydell, Frankie Avalon and the O'Jays.

Matheny has had the privilege of appearing in concert with jazz luminaries Larry Coryell, Nathan Davis, Amina Figarova, Tommy Flanagan, Darrell Grant, Larry Grenadier, John Handy, Billy Higgins, Red Holloway, Denise Jannah, James Moody, Jean Louis Rassinfosse, Tony Reedus, Sam Rivers, Max Roach, the Rosenberg Trio, Bud Shank, Sonny Simmons, Mary Stallings, Billy Taylor, Bobby Watson and Paula West.

Matheny's discography lists over 50 compact discs on which he appears as a composer, arranger, producer, annotator or flugelhorn soloist. He has released eight critically-acclaimed albums as a leader: Red Reflections [1995], Penumbra [1996], Starlight Cafe [1998], Santa's Got a Brand New Bag [2000], Nocturne [2005], The SnowCat [2006], Spiritu Sancto [2007] and the anthology Best of Dmitri Matheny [2008].

Although best known as a flugelhorn player, Dmitri Matheny is also a prolific composer and lyricist whose published compositions span the jazz, pop, symphonic, choral, chamber and world music genres. He has received premieres and commissions from Meet the Composer, the Manhattan New Music Project, the American Society of Composers Authors and Publishers [ASCAP], the Jazz Composers Orchestra and 20th Century Forum.

Matheny’s film scoring and soundtrack credits include the PBS documentary Mary, Paradox & Grace [1996], the short film Greenhorn Creek [1997], the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art production Voices & Images of California Art [1997], and the RKO Pictures feature film Shade [2003], Damian Nieman’s modern noir starring Gabriel Byrne, Jamie Foxx, Melanie Griffith, Thandie Newton, Sylvester Stallone and Stewart Townsend. In 2006 Matheny contributed music for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of a short film from the horror anthology Trapped Ashes.

Matheny's most ambitious creation to date is Spiritu Sancto: the New Millennium Mass. A monumental sacred work scored for chorus, organ, percussion, brass quintet, jazz ensemble and gospel soloist, Spiritu Sancto received its world premiere at the stroke of midnight on the dawn of the new millennium at St. Domenic's Cathedral in San Francisco.

Dmitri Matheny is a dedicated arts educator, community leader and advocate for jazz. He presents clinics, lectures, master classes and workshops at leading universities and conservatories and is gratified to have staged more than 500 free, curriculum-based concerts for kids, introducing over 50,000 school children to jazz.

Matheny has held teaching faculty and management positions with the Jazzschool, Boston Center for the Arts, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Chabot Space and Science Center, Monarch Records and the Stanford Jazz Workshop.

He has served as Director of Education, Director of Development and Director of Corporate Sponsorships for SFJAZZ, the largest nonprofit jazz presenter on the west coast, as Assistant Education Director for the Thelonious Monk Institute Jazz Colony at Jazz Aspen Snowmass, and as Artist-In-Residence for the Siskiyou Institute of Ashland and the Young Musicians Program of the University of California, Berkeley.

Matheny is past president of the Berklee College of Music Alumni Association, a former governor of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, and a former trustee of the San Francisco Jazz Organization.

His volunteer service to the field includes frequent participation in music industry conferences, symposia and grant-making initiatives. Past and current affiliations include the International Association for Jazz Education, Association of Performing Arts Presenters, Western Arts Alliance, California Arts Council, National Endowment for the Arts, Chamber Music America and National Jazz Service Organization.

A San Francisco resident since 1989, Dmitri relocated in 2009 to Phoenix, Arizona. Now at home in the Valley of the Sun, Dmitri manages the Art Farmer Memorial Jazz Scholarship Fund and serves as Vice President of the Board of Directors of Jazz in AZ, a nonprofit organization which cultivates jazz interest through youth education, community outreach, concert presentation and scholarship opportunities.
