The Peter Erskine Group was the highlight of the 2017 Ospedaletti Jazz Festival on August 4th in the Liguria region of Italy. Held at an amphitheater of a local park, the sold out show was attended by jazz fans from as far away as neighboring France. The band was comprised of Peter Erskine (drums), John Beasley (keyboards), Bob Sheppard (saxophone), and Benjamin Shepherd (bass). Erskine's remarkable resume includes time with the Stan Kenton Orchestra, Weather Report, Chick Corea, Gary Burton, Pat Metheny an many others. The concert featured fantastic solos from the entire band.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
