Stepping into the spotlight, the debut LP ‘Liner Notes’ from Matthew “Honeybee” Little, is a sonic journey through genre combining jazz.
Matt’s debut single “Hawks in Flight” opens with Matt playing an introspective piano line and quickly takes flight with a heavy bass line and driving jungle drum cadence, only to soar off with a series of melodic trumpet cadences. The genius of Matt’s songwriting shines in the arrangements as the song twists and turns through breaks, flute solos, and floating keys.
Followers of the Los Angeles and London jazz scenes will feel and hear the lineage of celebrated modern greats like Kamasi Washington and Yussef Kamaal. With “Hawks in Flight”, Matt is carrying the mantle of progressive, boundary pushing music sure to resonate and become a favorite with the jazz and beat scenes.
