Peter, who has worked with Weather Report, Steps Ahead and many other jazz luminaries, will play a varied programme including works specially commissioned for this concert including A Bird Sings, Fullness of
Time, Scotland Africa, I Remember You and Stompin’ at the Savoy.
The evening will also feature an interview with Peter by Neil Percy, Head of Timpani and Percussion, discussing his incredible musical career to date. Neil and Head of Jazz Nick Smart will direct a variety of ensembles in this not-to-bemissed programme.
