IT IS UPON US! Tonight the debut album of Peter Petty & His Terpsichoreans FINALLY DROPS at Harlow's. So proud of the finished product, not only for my own contributions but for the band as a unit. Students of classic jazz and big band will recognize the nuance, expression, and cohesion that comes with larger ensembles only after playing together with great regularity. 'Tis rare indeed to have a crew of this size who know, not just what to play, but how to comfortably take risks with one another. That is when Swing Supreme can be achieved, a phenomenon that lives in the moment and is as elusive as it is electrifying. It's been my privilege to be a part of these ensembles for years of one-nighters and rehearsals. (Yes, rehearsals!) "Ready, Petty, Go!", with a tight-knit cast of THIRTEEN players, features 16 tracks and one solid hour of sounds from some of the region's finest swing-minded players, dues paid, and something to prove. A heady brew indeed, courtesy of Peter Petty, the mad scientist of Sactown stomp, and expertly recorded by GRAMMY-nominated Kid Andersen. It's a privilege to be a part of, hope to see you all tonight!
Colleen is thrilled to be performing with the Summer Club! She has performed with many regional theatres throughout Philadelphia, but spends the majority of her time now working as a family medicine physician at Christiana Hospital in Delaware and being a mom to the most amazing little boy ever! Thanks a million to Jeff, Joey, Siobhan and all the summer club peeps for the opportunity to dust off my inner artist, and as always, love to my biggest cheerleader, Mike! Enjoy the show! @michael.philip.ob #duets#comeswingwithus#bigband#manayunkpa#veniceislandperformingartscenter
What a night! @morrisontrumpet with 2!!! #bigband made up of his academy and the 'Triple J Orchestra' Brilliant young musicians who were working with him all week learning the finer points of jazz from the master, culminating in this fabulous concert! Amazing music! Lots of laughs as well, so glad I was there!
