Chicago-based bassist/composer and bandleader Matt Ulery has developed a distinct sound full of sweeping lyricism, unconventional phrase structures, and expressionistic emotionalism. Ulery’s music is informed by the entire spectrum of jazz, classical, rock, pop, and folk– specifically American, South American, Balkan, and other European folk styles.
Ulery has performed collaboratively with Kurt Rosenwinkel, Phil Markowitz, Jimmy Chamberlin, Fareed Haque, Howard Levy, Patricia Barber, Goran Ivanovic, Jeff Parker, Zach Brock, and many others. As a composer, Ulery has worked with ensembles such as the New Millennium Orchestra of Chicago and continues his long-time collaboration with the University of Richmond’s ensemble-in-residence eighth blackbird.
