Peter Van Huffel

Canadian saxophonist Peter Van Huffel currently makes his home in Brooklyn, New York and has quickly established a reputation as one of the most exciting, unique, new voices on the New York improvised music scene. His quintet, which according to All About Jazz “features some of the most outstanding, original and innovative musicians in New York’s new talent pool,” performs regularly at such New York staples as the 55 Bar, and at a number of important venues in the rapidly growing Brooklyn music scene like Barbes and the Tea Lounge. Peter is an apprentice of David Liebman and Pat LaBarbera, and has toured extensively throughout Canada, Europe and the United States as a leader and a sideman. Since his move to New York in 2002, Peter has performed alongside such world-renowned musicians as Chris Potter, Clarence Penn and Donny McCaslin, and has obtained his Master's in music from the Manhattan School of Music.

Most recent press on “Silvester Battlefield”:

Peter Van Huffel CD RELEASE �” by Jim MacNie (Village Voice)

“The Canadian Brooklynite has just dropped Silvester Battlefield, one of the more memorable Fresh Sounds discs in a while. In it the saxophonist proffers the kind of graceful turbulence that sidesteps melody yet delivers a compelling tunefulness. It’s all about the exploratory, and its inner structures keep you on the edge of your seat.”
