Peter's debut album, “ The Straphanger's Playlist” was released on March 31st, 2015. The music developed over a year's time, the album features a sextet at its core, with additional percussion and a string section on individual tracks. Additionally, Peter took a cue from legendary composer Steve Reich and, in the manner of Reich's Counterpoint pieces, recorded the last track on the album, a saxophone quintet, by overdubbing himself playing all five parts on the four members of the saxophone family. He called on some of the most bada$$ musicians in NYC (world?) to realize this project: Jay Jennings (tp), Isamu Macgregor (p), Panagiotis Andreou (b), Aki Ishiguro, (g), and Mauricio Zottarelli (drums). The album is currently available in all major online stores and in the store section on this site in either in download or physical form (on a 2GB flash drive).
