Matthew Bourne | Back
Piano

Piano maverick Matt Bourne is often confused with the choreographer of the same name, a fact that probably doesn't worry him at all as he pursues his totally uncategorisable approach to music. His torrential keyboard style combines with a wicked sense of humour that has seen him described as "the bastard child of John Shuttleworth and Cecil Taylor", while his comprehensive knowledge and understanding of music history sees him incorporate influences (and electronic samples) from an enormous range of sources, all of it in pursuit of an individual approach that has made him one of the most talked about young jazz musicians of the past decade.
