Since the late 1970’s, Seattle pianist Dave Peck has been a bright spot in the regional jazz scene.
From his early career as an accompanist for visiting jazz artists at Jazz Alley, through a long, productive partnership with saxophonist Bud Shank, to his continuing role as the leader of his own group, Dave’s given us a lot of wonderful, adventurous music over the years.
In this studio session, hosted by Jim Wilke, Dave talks about his career, his approach to performing and why his band never–never–rehearses. It’s a revealing conversation interspersed with 3 of Dave’s favorite songs: If I Were A Bell, Here’s That Rainy Day and Stella By Starlight. The Dave Peck Trio includes Eric Eagle (drums), Jeff Johnson (bass), and Dave Peck (piano).
- If I Were A Bell
