Brazilian born jazz violinist, Andrei Matorin embodies the energy and life that surrounds him in OPUS, his debut album of original compositions.Presently living in New York City, Matorin will re-release OPUS on Truth Revolution Records on February 28, 2012, following rave reviews including “Editor’s Picks” on Downbeat.com.
He has performed and recorded with world-renowned and award-winning musicians such as Rosa Passos, Claudio Roditi, Tiger Okoshi, Nilson Matta, Oscar Stagnaro, John Lockwood, Bob Moses, Christian Scott among countless others.
Currently, he is collaborating with Paquito D’Rivera in the formation of his new Septet.
Matorin became the first violinist to graduate from the Jazz Program at the New England Conservatory’s Preparatory School and that same year was awarded a scholarship to Berklee College of Music where he went on to receive two Achievement Awards. As Matorin notes, “I would like my music to inspire people. I would like them to share in the emotions that we convey through our music. I would like this album to inspire my listeners to rethink the way they are used to seeing, hearing and engaging the world around them.” With the acclaim he has received for OPUS, he has accomplished just that.
