Peter Erskine is recognized throughout the world as one of the most creative and expressive drummers playing in any style of music. His credits range from his early days with Stan Kenton to music as diverse as that of Weather Report, Chick Corea, Joni Mitchell, Michael Brecker and Steely Dan. He is also a composer of music for his bands, plus theatre, dance and film projects. In addition, he has released twelve albums under his own name, as well as several instructional videos and books. Peter has also been recognized with many awards, including being named Top Mainstream Jazz Drummer (six times) in the Modern Drummer magazine reader’s poll.
Live at JazzBaltica features the Peter Erskine Trio with pianist John Taylor and bassist Palle Danielsson. Recorded in 1993 in Salzau Germany, this program captures a brilliant group on an especially inspired night.
