About the Peter Brown Quartet
For the past 3 years, a quartet of Ottawa’s most established jazz players has been playing to a packed house of enthusiastic fans at Carleton Place’s Ballygiblin’s Restaurant on the first Thursday of every month.
The group is:
1. jazz and blues pianist/singer Peter Brown. Peter has toured with Canadian blues legend Dutch Mason, American blues artist Sherman Robertson and with former Rolling Stones guitarist Mick Taylor, and was the keyboardist for Mumbo Jumbo Voodoo Combo for 17 years. He led his own jazz trio with which he performed at the Ottawa jazz festival nine years running.
2. drummer Glenn Robb, a veteran of the Ottawa Jazz community who has played with such jazz greats as Benny Goodman, Mel Torme, Tal Farlow, Peter Appleyard, Junior Mance and Brian Browne to name a few.
3. trumpeter/singer Don Paterson, perhaps Ottawa’s finest jazz trumpet soloist and one the most sought-after horn players in the area.
4. bassist Dave Arthur, who has been an Ottawa based trombonist, bassist, vocalist,composer and arranger for 40+ years. His career has taken him all over the world (including extensive Canadian touring).
The group has just recorded Beautiful Love, a CD of the standards and jazz favourites they play at Ballygiblin’s, which will be released some time in June, 2014.
