Iridium Live

Originally booked as an organ trio gig in 2012 with guitarist Dave Stryker and drummer Adam Nussbaum at the Iridium in NYC, Pete had been planning a tribute to Gil Evans project.  Accordingly, invited 3 Gil Evans alumni to the band to join them - Alex Foster on sax, Lew Soloff on trumpet, and John Clark on French horn.  It's a largely improvised set with dynamic performances from all 6 players.  The newly formed Iridium Live label folded its tents shortly afterwards.  This rare recording is only available through Pete on CDBaby.

GOP Party Monsters

Mission Accomplished!!  During the George W Bush era, Pete and comedian/writer Wayne Lammers put together this collection in 2004, spoofing the worst of the GOP bigwigs.  Although that bunch might seem tame compared to the current Trump era, it wasn't then. The album features musical sendups of Rush Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, Ann Coulter, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleeza Rice, Eliot Spitzer, Bill Frist, and of course, Dubbya.  (Right-wingers ... you might want to pass on this one.)
