SFJAZZ Collective bassist Matt Brewer gave us his picks from the band’s extensive repertoire this week, focused on his years as a member starting with 2018’s tribute to Antônio Carlos Jobim.
Born in Oklahoma City to a family of musicians, Brewer began as a 10-year-old prodigy, studying at the Interlochen Academy and later as part of the inaugural class at the Juilliard Jazz Program. He has recorded three albums as a leader for the Criss Cross label, including his 2019 trio album Ganymede, and his extensive résumé includes work with Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Steve Coleman, Lee Konitz, Gerald Clayton, Vijay Iyer, Antonio Sánchez, and Mark Turner. Brewer is an adjunct professor at The New School in New York and the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. He joined the Collective in 2018.
