Jazz Pianist Peter Martin To Perform Tribute To Blue Note Records At The Sheldon

A discussion with Peter Martin as he begins the 2013-14 series of concerts at the Sheldon with a program of music from the Blue Note Records catalog.

Jazz pianist and St. Louis native Peter Martin returns to The Sheldon on Saturday for Peter Martin Music Live: A Blue Note Records Tribute.

Martin will be performing as part of a quartet with a group he hand-picked: guitarist Peter Bernstein, bassist Reuben Rogers and drummer Ulysses Owens Jr.

"That's the great thing about having your own series," said Martin. "You bring the people you want to play with."

Martin chose to perform a selection of music from the Jazz label Blue Note Records, but had a hard time choosing what music to play.

"It's just such a rich, vibrant and robust catalog," said Martin. "I apologize in advance for some very important artists and records we had to overlook this time....If folks like it, it will give us a good reason to do part two and part three."
