Playing with Peter Ind, in a manner of speaking

Happy to have found these playalong recordings that bassist and Tristano student Peter Ind recorded way back in 1969 called “Time for Improvisation.” Just walking through some of the favorite tunes of the Tristano School. You can check them out here:

I always loved Peter’s ringing tone on the London Concert recording with Lee and Warne.

I’ve recorded with a couple of the tracks in anticipation of actually getting to play with people again!

Check it out!

Thanks to Peter who is currently 92 years old living in England. You can see him in action here in 1977 with the great Louis Stewart:

Speaking of the bass, my Bach Shapes bass clef edition is selling well on Amazon! If you are interested pick up a print or kindle edition there or the PDF on my site!

New Dave Brubeck Octet Video

So one of the many projects I am trying to find time for this school year is putting the Brubeck Octet handwritten original parts in to Sibelius for the new Brubeck archive in Wilton, CT. I made a video about the process, enjoy!

Digging in to the Brubeck Octets

Please subscribe to the channel if you get a chance. This video probably took about 8 hours to make, and I’d like to make them even more involved, but it would be nice to hear that people watched them! Drop a comment here or on Youtube. You can also donate as I am doing this particular project for free, for myself and academia. or Venmo to @jon-delucia. Thanks and stay tuned!
