Season 2 Episode 8 - Matt Bauder
Matt Bauder is a saxophonist who plays with a full, fluid sound that also features that breathy whisper reminiscent of Gene Ammons or Ellery Eskelin. In 2011, Downbeat stated that "he has a gift for isolating a musical language, mastering it and then introducing a personalizing twist." This is exactly what he has done with his two newest bands, Hearing Things and Day in Pictures. Also an active sideman, Matt might be the first musician to play with both Anthony Braxton and Arcade Fire.
