Petrucelli performs monthly at Somethin' Jazz Club in NYC and throughout the tri-state area.
Critic Bill Milkowski describes tenor saxophonist John Petrucelli’s work as “flowing and intense... Petrucelli weds astounding technique to harmonic and rhythmic invention and a forceful sense of swing.”
In 2015 sees Petrucelli surging onto the jazz scene with his compelling debut album The Way, which will be released on February 3, 2015, featuring emerging jazz artists Peter Park (guitar), Victor Gould (piano), Alexander Claffy (bass) and Gusten Rudolph (drums) alongside legendary drummer Victor Lewis.
