Brooklyn based trombonist, vocalist, and composer Peter Nelson is one of today's most in demand young jazz artists.
Born in Lansing, MI., Nelson found the trombone at age 10. He quickly became immersed in improvised music, performing regularly as a sideman and leader. Throughout college Peter performed with some of today’s top jazz artists such as renowned bassist Rodney Whitaker. After spending a year producing and recording his second album as a leader, Nelson moved to Brooklyn, NY where he currently resides.
Along with leading multiple groups that perform exciting original music, Nelson is also a sought after section player, having performed with jazz orchestras backing the likes of John Hendricks, McCoy Tyner, Benny Golson, Jamie Cullum and Terence Blanchard to name a few.
As a composer, Nelson has amassed a body of work that includes everything from jazz ensemble to contemporary pop. His music has been featured in films, art installations, dance, and has been heard at clubs and concert halls across the country.
Nelson’s versatility as a performer has led to a wide variety of performances and recordings with artists such as Verve Pipe, Rodney Whitaker, The Captain Black Big Band, Jamie Cullum, The Hudson Horns, Marianne Solivan, Dan Pugach nonet, Matt Wilson, Grupo Aye’, The George Gee Swing Orchestra, Valerie Ponomarev, Michael Dease Big Band, and a score of others.
