Matt

Posted on

It’s hard to believe that there have been five years without Matt. I’m lucky, he’s still in my heart, and my head, I can read his words and listen to his music, I can still conjure him, but damn, he’s missed. This is track 7 from his album Evenings of Ordinary Sand – 15 Yayli Tanbur Taksimleri, and it’d be good if you took the time to listen (if you feel like it). Matt played the Yayli Tanbur beautifully. Not only was he the best bass player I’ve ever heard, he also adored more unusual instruments too, the oddest being the trumpet marine. The illustrations are his too.
