Peter Zummo
Deep Drive

The incomparable Peter Zummo releases the latest LP of his long and distinguished career. Zummo assembled an ensemble of serious clout to play on Deep Drive - alongside his longtime pal Ernie Brooks we also have Oliver Coates, Keith McIvor (aka JD Twitch) and Ralph Cumbers (aka Bass Clef) at the party. The record is another masterful compositions set of compositions that hovers at the edge of fourth-world free music and the post-minimal avant-garde.

Peter Zummo
Dress Code (Don't Look At My Car)

Arthur Russell collaborator and NYC trombone talent Peter Zummo’s new album is a halfway house between composition and improvisation, with Zummo’s group given plenty of room to explore. The finished results on Dress Code (Don’t Look At My Car) are hybrids assembled from multiple versions of each track, and the whole thing has a strong, strange, woozy feel. Yum. Out on Optimo.

Peter Zummo
Frame Loop

Legendary trombonist/euphonium player Peter Zummo dusts off some archival recordings here. Frame Loop is taken from his 1984 Six Songs suite and features Arthur Russell on the cello. In combination with Russell, marimba player Bill Ruyle and conga man Mustafa Ahmed, Zummo weaves heady, impressionistic music that touches on spiritual jazz, New Age and disco.

The past has been brought to the present. Artwork by Nancy Graves. Music for the whole of your body.

Peter Zummo
Zummo With An X

Yes. Good. Anyone familiar with the work of Arthur Russell will have found themselves thinking ‘ooh, that’s a nice bit of trombone, wonder who’s responsible for it’. The answer is Peter Zummo, Russell’s friend and an extremely important figure in the late-20th Century musical landscape. 1985’s Zummo With An X, made with an ensemble that included Russell on cello and voice, is a fine summation of Zummo’s oeuvre. The combination of free jazz techniques, new age aesthetics and (post-)minimalist compositional practice can be compared to Midori Takada. Now Zummo With An X is reissued for the first time by Optimo.
