Peter Fish is mainly known as a composer/arranger/producer for feature films, Top 10 singles and network television series. But jazz lovers will probably recognize him for his quality work as a jazz composer and multi-instrumentalist.
During the 70's young Peter Fish moved to New York and found himself in an environment where he was constantly surrounded by music and co-talent. It didn't take long before Peter Fish created a collective of jazz musicians. Fish and his band of musical minds performed regularly throughout New York's club circuit. Ali's Alley (drummer Rashied Ali's spot), Barbara's in Greenwich Village, Mikell's on the Upper West Side and small clubs in Brooklyn where places you could frequently drop into a beautiful session. This wonderful group of players included some who would go on to be amongst the brightest lights of modern jazz, including Jay Clayton (Vocals) and Adam Nussbaum (Drums).
In the summer of 1975 Peter gathered his collective to record 5 compositions . The outcome was this great album 'THE SILVER APPLE' heavily influenced by Coltrane and his quartet, as well as by Cecil Taylor, Maurice McIntyre, Roswell Rudd and many musical greats. It's a monumental LP as it will take you back to a truly unique time of jazz in New York.
