First Love is the debut release by Kansas City jazz guitarist and composer Matt Hopper.

Matt has studied and absorbed the rich history of jazz guitar and the blues drenched tradition of Kansas City jazz. Matt's playing and approach to composing, however, is original rather than derivative. His unique playing reflects the romantic, Spanish roots of the guitar. Matt has also explored the rich musical culture of Brazil with frequent trips playing and listening to music and just hanging out with new friends.

On First Love, Matt brings all of these influences to bear as he creates something new. The instrumentation is the traditional organ jazz trio format: guitar, hammond organ, and drums.

Drummer Kevin Frazee has worked with Matt for many years. Initially, they played music together with jazz organ master and musical mentor to many, Everette DeVan. Organist Ken Lovern has worked with both Kevin and Matt often, and their musical empathy and telepathy are present in both the arrangements and the numerous extended solos.

The material for this release developed over several years during weekly gigs at Kansas City's Green Lady Lounge. The release includes 6 original compositions and 2 new arrangements of jazz standards.
