BPG member cornetist Peter Ecklund describes his music as “a mixture of Jazz and other traditional American music.” A Yale graduate and classically trained musician Peter’s career as composer and performer spans the years from his graduation from college in 1967 to the present. He started as a classical trumpeter with the New Haven Symphony and later played with Gregg Allman among many others. He was in David Bromberg’s original band and plays with Bromberg’s Big Band today (See: David Bromberg Band on You Tube).
