The Peter Sprague jazz trio explores songs that resonate with the boomers. They start with The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, James Taylor, and Cream, and then for balance they play “Georgia” or add Cole Porter.
Peter Sprague’s trio celebrates the jazz tradition of improvisation. One big difference is instead of using the Great American Songbook as their launching pad, instead they explore The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Bob Marley, Jimi Hendrix, James Taylor, and Cream from a jazz viewpoint. The result is songs that you’ve heard, but delivered in a new sonic light. And just to keep the palette of colors fresh and revolving, the group will play “Georgia” by Hoagy Carmichael or add in a Cole Porter beauty. The trio includes Tripp (who is Peter’s brother) on saxophone who also doubles on flute, chromatic harmonica and percussion. Leonard Patton sings up a storm all the while sitting on a cajon (percussion box) and playing rock solid drum grooves. Peter plays a one of kind double neck guitar and has an array of special pedals on the floor that he adds in as needed. Together, they travel to special aural vistas all with the spirit of fun leading the way.
