Admission $15 (now taking cards)
Peter is a “Bad” tenor man. He possesses the big sound and soulful jazz phrasing that is reminiscent of many of the great tenor saxophonist of the 20th century. A native of Florence, SC and graduate of Furman University, Peter is plotting his move to the jazz big leagues - New York City. Fortunately for us, he is still living and performing (with just about everybody) right here in Greenville.
For this session we showcase Peter in a trio setting featuring bassist Shannon Hoover and drummer Kevin Korschgen. The saxophone trio was once a rarity, but when jazz artists (Sonny Rollins, in particular) began experimenting with chordless ensembles in the 1950s, it became a daring extension of those experiments, and eventually a staple of small-group jazz. The lack of a piano or any other chordal instrument gives the band’s sound an openness, a devil-may-care that suggests anything can happen at any moment. Less is more will definitely be the case at WS 77!
