Matthew Santos is a musical force whose etherial vocals earned him a Grammy nomination for his role on Lupe Fiasco's million-selling "Superstar." Santos, now a highly regarded singer in his own right, has previously collaborated with Siegel in Chamber Blues events. Master percussionist Frank Donaldson has been a fixture with Chamber Blues for two decades. His resume includes stints with Archie Bell & the Drells ("Tighten Up") and the Ramsey Lewis Trio for eleven years as well as work with Curtis Mayfield, Ray Charles, Bill Withers and the Chicago Jazz Ensemble.
