German born guitarist/composer PETER STORN is well known for his expertise
in blending the sounds of jazz, funk, blues, R&B, rock, and Latin. He
delivers the results in a tasty, expressive contemporary jazz style.
Peter studied in Germany, as well as in London, England, and he graduated
from Musicians Institute (GIT) in Los Angeles. After working in L.A. for
a couple of years, he has been making his home in Phoenix, Arizona. He's
also studied jazz at Arizona State University.
In his band, the PETER STORN PROJECT,
Peter's talent takes center stage as he effortlessly glides across the strings
of both electric and acoustic guitars. Smooth saxophone and thoughtful keyboards
accentuate the multi-dimensional depths of this 5-piece musical adventure.
You will relish the ease of his style, jump with his playful spontaneity,
and enjoy the sophistication he offers with his well-developed arrangements.
In concert, you will also enjoy the variety and balance between his original
writing and new treatments of music by artists like Miles Davis, Charles
Mingus, Sonny Rollins, The Crusaders, or David Sanborn.
The band's recordings have been well received on radio
and TV. The ensemble is a member on the Artist Roster of the Arizona Commission on the Arts, and recently completed
a successful tour of Mexico. The players in the PETER STORN PROJECT have
an impressive resumé with credits that include work with Alex Acuna,
Bruce Hornsby, Dionne Warwick, Stevie Nicks, and music written for the TV
shows "B.L. Stryker" and "Evening Shade" with Burt Reynolds.
