about

Matt Cappy's sophomore album Tales Of The Tape displays Matt's creative compositions in jazz, soul, latin, hip hop, and the groove that exists in each genre all pulled together with his staple warm trumpet sound. Matt's production mind explores with various instruments and the blending sounds on each track. Take for instance the upright bass, played by Philly Legend Mike Boone on Tronix, Activ8, Better Days, and Gum Sole which gives a true Jazz Club earthy feel to the songs. Or the Keys and Synths on Electric Shine and Activ8 which gives the songs a new energy by harkening back to some sounds Matt loved coming from Genesis and Talking Heads albums.
The name of the album, "Tales Of The Tape" is an ode to Matt's first trumpet mentor, the late great Joe Fallon of Philadelphia's Port Richmond section. Joe would have Matt bring a cassette tape to all his lessons that Joe would record an album from his collection to that cassette tape. Matt still has hundreds of these tapes and all that music has helped to shape the musician, trumpeter, composer, producer Matt is today.
