    Presented by Berklee, NPR Music, and WBGO FM, The Checkout - Live at Berklee, brings critically acclaimed alumni back to their alma mater for intimate concerts at Cafe 939. The series continues with guitarist Matthew Stevens and his quintet, featuring Gerald Clayton (piano), Vicente Archer (bass), and fellow alumni Eric Doob (drums) and Paulo Stagnaro (percussion).

    The concert will be webcast live in HD video at nprmusic.org and airs in New York on WBGO 88.3 FM at 8:00 pm. It will also be archived for on-demand listening at NPR Music and checkoutjazz.org.

    One of the brightest guitarists of his generation, Stevens will soon be releasing his debut album on Concord Records. Stevens has performed and recorded with some of the finest contemporary musicians, including Christian Scott, Victor Bailey, Jason Moran, Jeff Lorber, Esperanza Spalding, and Terri Lyne Carrington. His playing has been applauded in publications including the New York Times, Downbeat, Jazz Times, Billboard, and the Los Angeles Times.

    During his time at Berklee, Stevens studied with such renowned artists as Joe Lovano, Pat Metheny, Mick Goodrick, David Samuels and Hal Crook. While still a student, he performed with jazz luminaries Gary Burton, Abe Laboriel, George Duke, and Lalah Hathaway. Stevens graduated summa cum laude in 2004 and was awarded the Guitar Department's highest honor, the Jimi Hendrix Award.
