EDITORS’ NOTES

Through his electrifying work with the likes of Esperanza Spalding, Terri Lyne Carrington, and Christian Scott, Matthew Stevens has become one of the world’s most exciting up-and-coming jazz guitarists. The stunning Woodwork—which marks his eagerly- awaited debut as a bandleader—places Stevens’ immense melodic gifts and deceptively intricate playing on full display. While “Sunday” is a sumptuous reimagining of David Bowie’s atmospheric 2002 original, the album’s haunting title track crackles with spirited interplay and a timeless folk-inspired melody.
