"Lupri, a migrant from rock drums to jazz vibes, plays fast, loose, and at
the top of his game" Down Beat, December '03

Jazz vibraphonist Matthias Lupri grew up in Kansas and Alberta, Canada. He studied drums and
began playing professionally as a teenager in blues, rock and
country music bands. In his early 20's, while studying music in
college, he became fascinated with jazz vibraphone music from
listening to a recording of the legendary Gary Burton. Lupri
recollects, "It totally changed my whole approach to music. For the
next five years, while I was still on the road with rock bands, I
would practice my vibes every day in my hotel room." Having found
a new musical expression with the vibes, he enrolled at the
Berklee College of Music in Boston to study with his mentor Gary
Burton and has been touring the world since.
