Tim Peck is a noted composer and performer hailing from the Quiet Corner of Connecticut. Tim has composed over sixty original works, ranging from solo themes for improvisation to full ensemble scores. He has also created over 400 arrangements. His current project, Rivulets, contains ten new original jazz compositions performed by the Tim Peck Trio. This new album is in production and has an expected release in the fall of 2015. He released Ms. Matched, a collection of original music for jazz piano trio, in 2007. Tim has also been featured as a guest artist on numerous recordings, including Dave Maswick’s The News From Here in 2013, Joel Brown’s Places in 2011, and Planting Seeds with Maria Sangiolo in 2011.
Tim is an original founding member of several performance ensembles. The Tim Peck Trio is modeled on a traditional jazz piano trio. Incorporating acoustic and electronic instruments, the trio blends traditional and genre-blending song forms into engaging original and arranged pieces. By composing and arranging music specifically for this group, Tim showcases the band’s creativity, filtered through his compositional palette.
Tim’s other ensemble, Carte Noire, is a free music trio that explores the textural sonic possibilities and dynamic interplay of piano, flute, and guitar. Carte Noire performs widely throughout the Northeast. In addition to its active performance schedule, Carte Noire also presents concerts, discussions, and workshops in free music, active listening, and collaborative music-making in New England communities and schools.
