About the Event

MATT WILSON’S CHRISTMAS TREE-O:

World-renowned drummer Matt Wilson leads the Christmas Tree-O, a swinging, holiday-centric group featuring Jeff Lederer on reeds and Paul Sikivie on bass. This performance is part of their 2022 Yule Dig Tour, which includes stops in Philadelphia, Princeton, Chicago, Des Moines, and New York City.

The Tree-O, a mainstay of the holiday season, always delights when bringing their signature festive flair to audiences around the US and Canada. Now in its twelfth year, it is recognized as one of the most vibrant and fun-loving ensembles in jazz today.

They just recorded a single, Mariah /McCintyre, which combines Mariah Carey‘s All I Want for Christmas Is You w/ avant-garde saxophone legend Kalaparusha Maurice McCintyre’s Kwanza. It will be released on November 25, 2022. In addition, the Christmas Tree-O will be the featured group on the 2022 NPR Jazz Night’s Holiday Show.

Drummer, composer, and swinging band leader Matt Wilson fosters evolving connections on and off the bandstand. An artful mastery of the jazz idiom accompanies his warmth and humanity. Over the years, Wilson has received praise from countless outlets for his craft and relentless spontaneity, including DownBeat, JazzTimes, Modern Drummer, and JazzIz; in 2018, he received recognition from the Jazz Journalists Association as Musician of the Year.
