Peter Cobb

Attorney turned jazz saxophonist now residing in New York City.

About Me

Peter then took a brief hiatus from jazz to pursue a career in public interest and international law, working in Switzerland and later attending the University of Pennsylvania Law School before serving as an attorney for several years after that. However, the pull of jazz proved too strong and he returned to a full-time career in jazz in late 2007. After performing and teaching regularly in the Philadelphia area (and recording several albums with guitarist Steve Giordano), Peter moved to New York City where he continues to take classes at NYU's jazz program (studying with Kenny Werner, Ralph Lalama, Brian Lynch among others), and works as a freelance performer and teacher. And despite the zip code, he is still a Red Sox fan.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
