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) and Jeff Johnson (bass).
