Matador - Matadorials


MATADOR fringes on the avant-garde and contemporary classical while also encapsulating the feel and passion of swing music. Consisting of multi-woodwind instrumentalist Michael Sachs from Los Angeles, drummer Jun Young Song from Seoul, Korea, and bassist Aaron Darrell from Virginia, MATADOR was formed through a commonality in past and interests. All three met at their undergraduate alma mater, Berklee College of Music; Michael on full scholarship and both Jun and Aaron World Scholarship recipients. While there, the three collectively studied with Terri Lynne Carrington, Greg Osby, Joe Lovano, Shannon LeClaire, John Lockwood, Drew Gress, George Garzone, Jamey Haddad, and Hal Crook. Matadorials is the first release from birnCORE Records and was produced by George Massenburg.
