Award-winning, multi-platinum-selling jazz sensation Matt Dusk is embarking on the most ambitious project of his already impressive career. Called Jetset Jazz, Dusk’s new album takes the listeners on a musical journey back to the Golden Age of The Great American Songbook.
Featuring both originals and standards of the day, Jetset Jazz, is a time capsule to when big-band swing was the pop music of the day, and all the airlines had plenty of leg room.
Not just covering Sinatra tunes, Matt Dusk offers up brand-new songs that manage to capture a timeless feeling while also sounding as if they were written all the way back when Sinatra was in his prime. These original tunes are exactly the type of music Sinatra himself would be singing today. Every song Dusk sings will take the audience back to Las Vegas in the 1950s, when the drinks were strong and the dice were hot.
Jetset Jazz is the 11th studio album from Matt Dusk in 16 years. The multi-platinum-selling artist has sold more than one million records worldwide, and racked up a series of awards and nominations along the way. Besides receiving 4 Juno nominations in Canada, Dusk is the recipient of a Rose Gali Award, the most prestigious music award in Poland, and is the first jazz artist in history to score a number-one hit in Japan. He has shared the stage with legends such as Tony Bennett and regularly tops the Jazz Charts all over the world.
But to really enjoy Matt Dusk, it’s important to see him live. Every performance is filled with the passion that can be heard on his albums, but with an energy that has to be seen to be believed. Considered one of the top live performers in the business, Dusk swaggers across the stage with the confidence of the boys in the Rat Pack playing a sold-out engagement at The Sands.
The stack of gold and platinum records—along with the numerous awards and nominations—isn’t going to slow down Matt Dusk anytime soon. With this ambitious trio of concept albums on the horizon—and a world tour ready to follow—Dusk is prepared to do what he does best: Offer the listener an experience that is both an amazing, nostalgic flashback and a modern classic waiting for ears to discover. Jetset Jazz is the perfect addition to any collection…with no baggage fees!
