This is excellent Contemporary Jazz Trio will grace our podium with their superb creative presence. A rare chance to hear Peter King strut his stuff without distraction and with a very sympathetic rhythm section! He is a walking authority on Charlie Parker and his own compositions in homage to the Master are a sheer tour de force. - Jazz Eddie
PETER KING, “the finest alto saxophonist that Britain has ever produced, and one of the finest in the world today” (Dave Gelly), continues to be a major influence on the World Jazz scene
A prolific composer and arranger, his most ambitious work to date is probably "Janus", a BBC commission, featuring his own Quartet and the "Lyric String Quartet".
Peter has composed a full length two act opera, "Zyklon", with the libretto by Julian Barry. A short workshop version was performed at the City University of New York on 13 Dec 2004 and received a standing ovation.
Peter is currently working on his autobiography, which is projected for publication sometime in 2007 and also a new Jazz Mass, to be premiered at Newcastle Cathedral.
"I hear both Trane and Bird in his playing, but he is better than either of them."
”A wonderful musician, Peter King, of course, is a master of his instrument. People are aware of that here in America as well as in England”
"Peter King is one of the best musicians in the world." . . . who travels very comfortably in the language of jazz and at the same time, classical music. “I feel very lucky to have met and to have worked with Peter”.
”Congratulations (on your opera) ‘Zyklon’. “I was very impressed with your avant-garde writing techniques, and at the same time, your sense of drama”.
-“..World’s great Altoist, My man!”
