PETER AURET - Live in Concert
Peter Auret is a Johannesburg based freelance drummer that has performed with many of the country’s greatest Jazz artists, he is also an award winning recording engineer on many iconic South African jazz records. The Peter Auret Trio is Peter’s passion project and features Pianist David Cousins and Ameashi Ikechi on Double Bass. The trio’s program consists mostly of original music composed by Peter and David and represents their varied musical influences that include: straight-ahead swing, Modern Jazz and World Music. As with many artists and entertainers around the world, the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown regulations has taken these musicians by surprise and created uncertainty with regards to future performances and financial security. Moreover the creative process of jazz and improvised music has been halted through social distancing, given that this form of music is based on ensemble playing and musical interaction.
