Seventeen-year-old jazz pianist Matt Savage has been heralded by Dave Brubeck as "amazing" and "another Mozart," and by Chick Corea as "delightful and inspiring." One of fewer than 100 people known in the world as a "prodigious savant," Savage was a big hit in his 2007 debuts at the Kennedy Center, the famed Blue Note and Birdland in New York, and at the New Orleans Jazz Festival. Savage began his remarkable young career at age 8 when he jammed with Dave Brubeck. Jazziz magazine gave Savage's 2006 album Quantum Leap a superb review, saying his "amazing technique shines" and JazzTimes described Savage as sounding like a "schooled, seasoned jazz pianist" who is "well on his way to forging an effective personal language." Part of the 2010 International VSA Festival.
