Circle

Circle, a jazz fusion recording featuring mostly original compositions, is now available. Playing on the album with Matthew are the extraordinary talents Ric Fierabracci (now playing with Chick Corea) on bass and Walter Rodriguez on drums. Los Lobos drummer Cougar Estrada plays on a cover of Message in a Bottle.

Message in a Bottle is a great example of his melodic senses and talents for amazing improvisation...keenly crafted original compositions
