Matthew De Gennaro

Old Jack Somebody

Following up where last year’s epic & beautiful Chuang Tzu Motherfucker LP left off, Matthew De Gennaro’s latest, Old Jack Somebody, once more delivers the composers’ truthful and wise sentiments in concise compositions that defy categorization. Some tunes reel, others weigh heavy, but all feature De Gennaro’s mystical sense of melody & varied atmospheres. Scott Tuma lends his guitar to the sprawling album closer, Doxa Blues.
