Ralph Peterson

  • The ArtsCenter 300 G East Main Street Carrboro, NC, 27510 United States (map)

Drummer and bandleader Ralph Peterson has been a force on the jazz scene since the 1980’s, when his work with Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers and the Blue Note Records Out Of The Blue project helped define the Young Lions sound of the era. His new jazz super group “Aggregate Prime” features an all-star lineup of some of today’s most exciting stylists, including guitarist Mark Whitfield, saxophonist / flutist Gary Thomas, bassist Kenny Davis, and rising star pianist Davis Whitfield. Their debut album Dream Deferred works at the frontier of contemporary jazz, updating the social justice works of musicians like Charles Mingus and Max Roach for a new generation.
