Matthew Kaminski
Born in Chicago, Matthew has been playing the organ for 18 years. In his early studies on the organ, Matthew explored the genre of theatre organ playing pieces in the style of Ethel Smith among others. Later on he was accepted into the University of Arizona's jazz studies department. He attended master classes by Wynton Marsalis and performed with jazz musicians David Friedman and Dave Samuels. Transferring to Georgia State University in 1998, Matthew studied with Dr. Geoffrey Haydon and was the principal pianist in the Georgia State Jazz Ensemble. In May 2000, Matthew graduated with a Bachelors of Music degree with an emphasis on jazz studies. Moreover he has been versatile in the Atlanta music scene. "Organized Time" is the group that Matthew leads with a variety of musicians since 1998.
 
Having been influenced by Jimmy Smith, Richard Holmes, Larry Goldings, Jack McDuff among others, Matthew continues to study and try to improve in bringing soul jazz into the future.
