Guitarist Matthew Stevens has already made a name for himself through his work with artists like trumpeter Christian Scott, saxophonist Walter Smith III, drummer Terri Lyne Carrington, and bassist-vocalist Esperanza Spalding. But he shouldn't be pigeonholed as a support player or viewed simply as sideman du jour in the eyes of the jazz world. That would be a mistake, as he has plenty to offer on his own. With Woodwork, Stevens' long-awaited debut, the guitarist steps forward and shows himself to be a master craftsman, an exceptional technician, and a startlingly original compositional force.
