Peter King Quartet

“I hear both Trane and Bird in his playing, but he is better than either of them.” – Gene Lees

PETER KING, in the words of one critic, “is the finest alto saxophonist that Britain has ever produced, and one of the finest in the world today” (Dave Gelly, ‘The Giants Of Jazz’, Aurum Press, 1986). He has been a major influence on the British Jazz scene ever since he played (at the age of eighteen!) the opening of Ronnie Scott’s Club, London’s internationally famous Jazz Mecca. “Had Scott’s Club died overnight and been heard of no more, it could still have justified its existence by pointing to a discovery like Peter King.”(Benny Green, ‘Jazz Decade, Ten Years At Ronnie Scott’s’, King’s Road Publishing Ltd 1969) ” A wonderful musician, Peter King is a master of his instrument. People are aware of that here in America as well as in England” said Elvin Jones in Jazz U.K. magazine Sept 2001. “Peter King is one of the best musicians in the world.” (Lalo Schifrin)

Appearing with Tom Cawley, Geoff Gascoyne, Mark Fletcher
