While Matt Richards has earned a well-deserved reputation as a first-rate solo acoustic guitarist, he's also highly regarded as a very capable musical collaborator in a variety of settings. He heads up a trio of top-notch jazz guitarists and fronts his own progressive-jazz-fusion trio, in which he plays both standard and fretless guitars. His most recent solo release Balance was entirely self-produced. Matt also composes and produces soundtracks and orchestral compositions.
“Matt's album Balance is really well-done - it's some of his best work. In particular, his rendition of the Black Orpheus theme is a masterpiece. I've never heard better. ”
— Larry Coryell
