WORLD RENOWNED PIANIST MATT SAVAGE HEADLINES A HOT NIGHT OF COOL JAZZ AT CJE’S GUARDIAN SOCIETY RECEPTION
World renowned jazz pianist Matt Savage will headline A HOT NIGHT OF COOL JAZZ at the Commission for Jewish Education’s Guardian Society Cocktail Reception. The event will be held Tuesday, March 12 at the home of Mary Montgomery in Palm Beach. Event co-chairs are Tami and Jim Baldinger of West Palm Beach and Michelle and Bowie Jacobson of Palm Beach Gardens. Carlton Fields and Morrison Brown Argiz & Farra, LLC are Corporate Guardians.
Praised by JAZZIZ magazine as “a wildly inventive composer, interpreter and pianist no matter what his age,” 20-year-old pianist Matt Savage began his performing career at the age of eight. At the age of 11, he debuted at the famed Blue Note and was signed as an artist for Bosendorfer pianos. Savage’s remarkable career is even more astonishing since at the age of three, he was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder, a high-functioning type of autism. He could not withstand sounds of any kind and could not communicate easily. Yet, in recent years, Matt has enjoyed the highly anticipated release of his ninth album, Welcome Home, in November 2010, his recent graduation with honors from Berklee College of Music, and his soon to be released tenth album.
