Guitarist and composer Matt Greenwood is carving out a new sound in Toronto’s jazz scene with his debut album Atlas.

Originally from Zimbabwe, Greenwood cut his teeth performing with some of the country’s most acclaimed musicians such as Oliver Mtukudzi and Forward Kwenda. He moved to Toronto to study jazz at Humber College — he also appeared on JAZZ.FM91’s Jazzology program in 2022 — and is now looking to make a name in Canada’s jazz scene.

The music of Atlas combines jazz improvisation with modern production aesthetics and a compositional approach that borders on contemporary classical music.
