Time Out says

Matthew Randal Greer IV was born in San Francisco in 1960, the grandson of Sonny Greer, who was famous for his work as a drummer with Duke Ellington. The young Greer was 'baptized' by Charlie Mingus at the Soulville club, which his parents owned. He comes from a world of jazz, yet his voice is reminiscent of Nat King Cole, with a romantic tone and plenty of swing, as well as other greats such as Cab Calloway, Stevie Wonder and Ella Fitzgerald. In 1991, Greer and Ignasi Terraza met onstage for the first time, united by their admiration and respect for the great Cole. After several projects together, including their popular versions of Christmas carols, today they return to Cole's music, along with Horacio Fumero and José Traver. Expect to be moved by romanticism and swing along with intimate and joyful music, both sensitive and expansive.
