Through 2002, Wallace performed around the world with Maynard, released 10 records, appeared on television and radio programs and performed with other jazz greats such as Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock. Currently, Matt performs in the Omaha area with several bands including Finest Hour, Fusion Force and Gooch’s Big Band.
