Peter Volpe.

With the current interest in Peter Fielding and the Volpe family (See new comments Old Posts - LH column) I've decided to repost this item which originally appeared in 2009. It contains some fine examples of Pete's trumpet playing.

Former Newcastle Big Band trumpet player Peter Volpe is originally from the north east of England. After studying Music and French in London he moved to France. Based in Paris, he has been a professional freelance musician since 1980, working principally in the fields of Jazz and Latin music. He has a particular interest in mainstream modern jazz. In addition to his various activities as a sideman, he runs his own quintet in which Patrick Villanueva, heard on the Hammond organ, is his regular pianist. (Copied from Peter's My Space profile). Click here for some good sounds.
