Peck Allmond-Keith Saunders
John Wiitala-Vince Lateano Quartet
With Keith Saunders on piano and John Wiitala on bass, you’re in for a superb evening of jazz.
Peck is a Bay Area native (he’s a notable member of the Berkeley High generation that includes Benny Green, Josh Jones, Peter Apfelbaum, Sarah Cline–players who gained their prodigious chops in the jazz program led by Phil Hardymon). He’s been Brooklyn-based since 1993, leading the Peck Allmond Quartet for a couple of decades and working with an array of major talents including Oliver Lake, John Hicks, Billy Harper, Don Cherry, Pharoah Sanders, Tom Harrell, John Stubblefield, MeShell Ndegeocello, Cindy Blackman, Madeleine Peyroux, Donny McCaslin, and Peter Apfelbaum, as well as James Brown, Rickie Lee Jones, Sean Lennon, Randy Newman, Ray Lamontagne, Wyclef Jean, Allan Toussaint, and Zooey Deschanel.
This quartet has worked together for at least a couple of years, with previous dates at Cafe Stritch and Chez Hanny, among others. Vince, John and Keith are all at the top of the local jazz scene, as they’ve been for decades!

The BBCLP is a 501(c)(3) non-profit...
