Tuesday, November 12, 2013 at 7:00 PM (EST)
For nearly 30 years Ralph Peterson has been recognized as one of the most distinctive drummers in Jazz! The legendary Art Blakey was so impressed that he invited Peterson to play alongside him in his two-drummer Jazz Messengers big band! He has since toured and recorded with such luminaries as Stanley Turrentine, Betty Carter, Michael Brecker, Terence Blanchard, Donald Harrison, Roy Hargrove and many more.
Ralph Peterson has recorded 18 CDs as leader of his own groups; 7 by his Fo’tet which has stayed intact for almost 25 years with few personnel changes. The Fo'tet features Peterson on drums along with Joseph Doubleday on vibraphone, Alexander L. J. Tóth on acoustic bass, and Richmond Jazz Society’s own Steve Wilson on saxophone!
