Pete began playing his brother’s guitar at age 11. He took lessons with the great Turk Van Lake of the Benny Goodman band, using the money he earned from his paper route in Staten Island, NY. Thus the foundations were laid for learning music theory and applying it to jazz improvisation. At 15 a fellow guitarist asked him to play bass during an afternoon jam session and Pete’s heart was turned to the tone and feel of the bass. Shortly thereafter he wrote the single Leave Me Alone for his band The Wanted, and played CBGB’s, Kenny’s Castaways and many other clubs in and around Manhattan. Always studying his craft, he took lessons through the years with NY Jazz teacher, Peter Prisco, studio legend Ken Smith, film composer Rick Giovinazzo and the “Groovemaster” of bass, Jerry Jemmott who had played for Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and a countless list of legends.
