In Conversation with Matthew Read – Anecdotes Vol 2

Full video available to Academy members »

About This Episode

In today’s podcast we meet up-and-coming double bassist Matthew Read.

Having caused quite a stir with the launch of his trio’s debut album back in 2016, the new year sees Matthew build on that success with a new album, Anecdotes Vol 2, which features 11 original compositions drawing on jazz, folk, country, hip-hop, dance music, spirituals and both European and American church music. As you might expect, there’s a lot more to leading a jazz trio than merely booking rehearsals, learning the material and getting to grips with the live performances. Luckily, with a First Class honours Degree in Jazz from the Guildhall School of Music and having already been awarded the prestigious Alec Dankworth Prize for Big Band composition and arranging, a talent as significant as Matthew’s is built to last, so catch him when you can …

In this episode you're going to learn:

  • All about Matthew’s trio.
  • How they recorded their latest album.
  • Why he decided to book his own tour.
  • How he handles life as a band leader.
  • And much, much more…
