Pianist/Conductor Peter Nero Interviewed at AAJ


Sign in to view read count
In July 2009, All About Jazz published an interview with legendary pianist and Philly Pops maestro Peter Nero. That interview jumped between his early musical development and his current 30-year tenure as founder and music director of the Philly Pops. There wasn't time then to ask him about the long intervening period including his salad days as a pianist, an ongoing venture which he continues to pursue in addition to being director of the Pops, the subject of this follow-up interview.

Once again AAJ Contributor Victor L. Schermer digs deep with Nero, conversing with the pianist/conductor about growing up during World War II, his rapid rise from clubs and radio to the Boston Pops, working with Mel Tormé and Frank Sinatra, and much, much more.
