The Matt Dickey Group is a smaller, more intimate combo. It can be anywhere from a trio to a sextet, covering mostly original material from Try This At Home and Cartography, Vol. 1 while stretching out with more group improvisation and sonic exploration. Additionally, they play standards as well as modern takes on older, rare-groove recordings a la Grant Green, Lou Donaldson, Melvin Sparks, and Jimmy Smith (among others).
Check out the MD Group performing Matt’s composition “In The AM” – live from Astoria, Queens on December 30, 2019:
