JAZZ NOIR | Dmitri Matheny

by

comment

Flugelhorn blower Dmitri Matheny plays as part of a cast of dark characters that inhabit the shadows of his brass-conjured, noir-centric music. A disciple at the feet of flugelhornist Art Farmer — Matheny plays the late legend's horn — he musically and poetically paints a world full of raconteurs, reprobates, and roustabouts. Dig as Matheny dives into the theme music from "Touch of Evil," "Laura," "Chinatown," and others with mellow ease. It's utterly righteous ... and straight out of the fridge.

Dmitri Matheny will perform Saturday, October 14, at Abilene Bar and Lounge, 153 Liberty Pole Way. 7 p.m. $10. abilenebarandlounge.com; dmitrimatheny.com.
