Local Musician Spotlight: Matt Smiley

Jul 4, 2018

Next in our series, “Spotlight on a Local Musician,” is an introduction to bassist Matt Smiley. As I’ve said in past Spotlights, here in metro Denver and Colorado we have an exceptionally educated, talented, creative group of jazz musicians.   I’ve lived in Boston and in Philadelphia, both of which have fine musicians. I continue to be floored as I discover the depth in the field of great jazz musicianship here in Cowtown. Matt Smiley ranks right up there with our best.
