The second concert of the West Stockbridge Jazz series will feature Jazz guitarist, composer and arranger Peter Hand’s trio with bassist Harvie S and drummer Steve Johns, presented by the West Stockbridge Historical Society.
Peter Hand leads his own groups in New York and New England, and has worked with many top artists including Carmen Lundy, Jon Lucien, Houston Person, Lee Konitz, Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Chicago Jazz Orchestra and Charleston Jazz Orchestra.
Joined by Harvie S, who has performed and recorded with Stan Getz, Tony Bennett, James Brown, Chick Corea, Pat Metheny and countless others, and Steve Johns, who has worked with the Count Basie Orchestra, Larry Coryell, Diane Schuur, Stanley Turrentine and Kenny Burrell, the trio will play selections from Hand’s brand new album on Savant Records, Hand Painted Dream, as well as fresh twists on jazz standards, Brazilian jazz and original compositions.
Hand’s previous albums have received excellent reviews and nationwide radio airplay. Downbeat stated, “Peter Hand’s latest album is cause for celebration..”, and Jazz & Blues Report said, “Hand is a wonderful guitarist in the vein of a Montgomery, Kenny Burrell, Grant Green and the like with a definite blues sensibility.”
