Flatiron Video: Matt Wilson and the Christmas Tree-O Live at Madison Square Park

Renowned jazz drummer Matt Wilson performed a free concert near Madison Square Park on Wednesday night, with hot apple cider provided by Blue Smoke to keep the audience warm.

Watch the band perform their creative renditions of Christmas carols (plus a token Chanukah song), culminating in several impressive drum solos. Thanks to the Jazz Standard and Flatiron BID/23rd Street Partnership for putting the wonderful holiday event together.

Flatiron Hot! had a chance to interview the world-renowned musician before the show. Click here and find out what Matt Wilson had to say about jazz, teaching, his favorite Christmas carols and more.
