Dmitri Matheny

Fluegelhornist Dmitri Matheny

Fluegelhorn, the trumpet’s fat, soft-spoken cousin, is the ideal instrument for intimate ballads. But it’s also an instrument of strength, as both Freddie Hubbard and Chuck Mangione have demonstrated. Fluegelhornist Dmitri Matheny, a protégé of the great trumpeter-fluegelhornist Art Farmer, will show just that when he performs as part of the Santa Fe Music Collective Café Jazz Series on Thursday, Aug. 22. Matheny’s been a fixture on the San Francisco jazz scene since the 1990s and has recorded a handful of discs for the California-based Monarch label. Like Farmer, he can flex muscles on his instrument of choice when playing bop or giving the up-tempo treatment to the American songbook. He’ll team with pianist Bert Dalton, bassist Milo Jaramillo, and drummer John Trentacosta. The show starts at 7 p.m. at Museum Hill Café, 710 Camino Lejo. The cost is $20, with a $10 food and drink minimum. Call 983-6820 or visit
