Matt Butler: http://www.mattbutlerquartet.com/

"Among the musicians successfully mining the field where groove meets jazz improv is Matt Butler, a talented young
guitarist who frequently works in quartet with sax, bass, and drums, is committed to open form structures and attentive group meditations on spontaneous themes. This kind of laboratory setting can, with experience and dedication, produce mesmerizing art." - Jazziz
"The Matt Butler Group is a tight band that has a full
understanding of tone and suspenseful dynamics.
Butler and his mates said as much when the notes
came one at a time as they did when they rained
upon the crowd."
-Times Union
