Matt White keeps on hitting new, higher notes, in multiple realms as a musician and educator.

The professional trumpeter and composer, and for Coastal Carolina University, its coordinator of jazz and commercial music, and director of ensembles, has released his second CD with the Super Villain Jazz Band, “Worlds Wide,” on Ear Up Records.

White, a married father living in Pawleys Island, with a second child on the way, fielded some questions about the team efforts that went into making “Worlds Wide,” composing its nine numbers, and getting back together with friends to paint a picture for listeners with instrumental expressions about enchanting places, all through notes, rhythms, and moods in the melodies.
