Hi Peter. I really don't know that much about you...just tonight I found your web site. However, for years I have been listening to Maynard Ferguson MF Horn and just love your playing on that record. I will be searching for more of your recordings so I can enjoy your playing more. I am a dedicated altoist and appreciate your playing, tone, sound, so much!! You are amazing. Nice to have found your site and to be able to say hi! Kraig

Tony Kofi, Byron Wallen, Anders Olinder, James Morton band - with ClareTeal, Pee Wee Ellis and others saying they will pop in and cameo if they can...WOULD YOU COME TOO? please x there is some budget - not masses as council funding!! but it will be a great day and would be even better if you could come. thanks Jane
Hi Pete

I saw you at the Bull last night, outstanding as ever. I was hoping you would play Pent-up suite, but the two Wayne Shorter pieces were ample compensation! Fantastic.

Hi Pete.
I am the small kid Hank Shaw used to take to gigs when I was 10 to the Bull and with Tubby to the ealing tech college when Hank and Tubby had a row as Hanks car got locked into the car park .I play a bari but not very well. Bill Le Sage actually remembered me when I saw him at the jazz club in plymouth.

Hi Peter,

it has always been a great thrill to hear you live. I was present at the Bird auction at Christies. My hairs on the back of my neck stood up and my eyes burned when you played confirmation on Bird's alto. You are truly one of the greatest ever alto saxophonists. You are in that elite group of the best half dozen that ever lived. I hope to see you for many more years to come. All the best. Jan 2010

Hi Peter,I have had the great pleasure of seeing you many times over the years at Ronnie's and various other venues and would really like to introduce some of my friends, all of whom are accomplished musicians, to your music.My problem is finding a gig guide for you as I've googled it and can't find anything very useful to tell me where and when you are playing dates during the rest of this year and into 2010.Can anyone tell me where I can find a list of your dates so I can book some tickets?Many thanks and looking forward to seeing you again and introducing some others to your music.Howard.

Happy memories!

Hello Peter!
My name is David Quillen, and I am a forty-five year old baritone saxophonist. I first became aware of your playing around 1990, on Everything but the Girls' "Eden" album. I heard your solo on "Crabwalk" and was completely floored!! I've been a fan ever since, and have acquired and enjoyed "East 34th St.", "Hi Fly", "Lush Life", "Speed Trap", "Tamburello", "Footprints", "Janus" as well as all the Charlie Watts stuff. Listening to your music is such an inspiring experience.....I think that what moves me most about your playing is your incredible tone and passion, that you never let your technique get in the way, that you know when to let the music breathe, but also know when to BURN!!!! Your music makes me feel more alive after I've heard it, which is the hallmark of all great music to me. My only regret is that I haven't had the pleasure of hearing you live, I sincerely hope that one day you will be able to come play in LA, otherwise I'm going to have to save up for a British trip!! Until then, keep playing, because there are people out there who really care about what you do!!!

Straight ahead,
David Quillen

You may or may not remember Don Lewis (regular at Oxford Jazz Club and Bull at Barnes through 60's and into 70's) I am his daughter (he introduced us backstage at a gig at Warwick University about 20 years ago and you autographed an album for me). Daddy (Don) died on Sunday. In looking for a charity to send donations to I got into jazz sites and found this. He also knew Bobby Wellins. Not sure why I am sending this really but an old name from his past may like to know he's gone.

Dear Peter, I'm so glad I have found this website. I've always wanted to tell you that I live in awe of your playing. I want to thank you for the endless pleasure it brings me. I first became aware of you when you had the Albert Hall and a TV audience hypnotised by every note. Since 1998 I've had the pleasure of hearing you play in an array of intimate venues. So far as I am concerned, I've had almost private performances from a superstar. Thank you so much for being there!
