Bassist and Composer Matt Ulery

Our third installment of the NEIU Jewel Box web episodes takes us to the flip side of the earth’s journey around the sun—that is, to a celebration of the winter solstice. Recorded last December 21st, the music comes from a recent CD release entitled, “By a Little Light.” These original compositions have a distinctly autumnal, if not wintery flavor, like “Dark Harvest” and “Shortest Day.” He performs not only on upright and electric bass, but doubles on tuba. Ulery describes his music in this way:

“…informed by the entire spectrum of jazz, classical, rock, pop, and folk– specifically American, South American, Balkan, and other European folk styles.”
