Peter Leitch

Peter Leitch has over the years, gained an international reputation for his unique personal style, rooted in tradition but recognizably his own. Of his fifteen recordings as a leader, many feature his long-time rhythm section of pianist John Hicks, Ray Drummond and Smitty Smith. Several also include a saxophonist (Pepper Adams, Bobby Watson, Gary Bartz and Jed Levy have each contributed to Peter's recordings).

Self-Portrait is Peter's most recent release (April 2007) and is his first complete solo effort. It features music ranging from Mingus, Ellington and Strayhorn to several new originals performed on electric and acoustic guitar.
