Motel
Lost and Found
Matt Grason

Bassist Matt Grason is not the first artist to bring jazz and hip-hop together, but few have managed to achieve such a seamless union as Grason’s brilliant Motel project. Combining tight modern jazz with the vocal talents of Washington, D.C.’s most creative freestylists, this intoxicating brew draws a direct lineage from 1960s pioneers the Last Poets but sounds absolutely fresh and relevant. Motel achieves that most difficult goal of any fusion project—it’s good jazz, good hip-hop and just plain riveting music.
