One of the top trumpeters on the national jazz scene, Brooklyn-based since 1993, Peck Allmond grew up in Berkeley, nurtured in Berkeley Unified”s famous elementary school music programs developed in the early 1960s by Dr. Herb Wong. Peck quickly gained national prominence after graduating from the Berkeley High jazz program run by Phil Hardymon.

Peck returns frequently to the Bay Area to visit family, and has frequently assembled this quartet in the past several years — with drummer Vince Lateano, bassist John Wiitala and pianist Keith Saunders. This will be the quartet’s third appearance at Bird & Beckett in the past two years.
