PRESS RELEASE Matti Klein, a brilliant jazz pianist, and a master of vintage keys (Wurlitzer, Fender Rhodes, analog synthesizers), is a founding member of the German jazz cult band Mo’Blow. As a favorite soloist and sideman in Berlin, Matti Klein has had the pleasure of playing with extraordinary musicians such as Nils Landgren, Allan Harris, David. T. Walker and Gunther Hampel. Since 2013 he acts as musical director and keyboard player for worldwide performances with the Brazilian soul-jazz icon Ed Motta.
