Description

The stellar jazz duo of Peter H. Bloom, flute, and John Funkhouser, piano, will perform an exuberant show of Blues, Ballads and Bebop – a captivating mix of beguiling ballads, high-energy blues, and sizzling bebop numbers, by great tunesmiths like Hoagy Carmichael, Harold Arlen, Clifford Brown, Dexter Gordon, Charlie Parker, Mercer Ellington, and others.

Peter and John have performed together for more than 20 years, winning praise for their stellar musicianship and entertaining concerts. Both are veterans of the legendary Aardvark Jazz Orchestra (46th season). Peter H. Bloom has shared the stage with jazz luminaries Charles Neville, Geri Allen, Sheila Jordan, Jaki Byard, Mark Harvey, and others. Acclaimed for “amazing versatility” (Arts Fuse) and “hip, jazzy flute work” (AllAboutJazz), Bloom performs in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia, New Zealand and Australia, and appears on 45 CDs. Jazz Improv praised his “exquisite melody,” while ArtsFuse wrote, “Bloom’s solos on flute and amplified flute are always highlights of a performance.” John Funkhouser has appeared with notables like Luciana Souza, Tierney Sutton, Ran Blake, Herb Pomeroy, Laszlo Gardony, Stan Strickland, and piano savant Matt Savage. He has performed at Birdland, Blue Note, Dizzy’s in New York, the Kennedy Center, and other top venues from Kansas City and New Orleans to Paris, Singapore, and Hong Kong. He teaches at Berklee College of Music.
