Peter King | Back
Alto & Sporano Saxophones

Born in 1940, Peter King played at the opening of Ronnie Scott's club while only 19 years of age, and has been a significant part of the UK scene ever since. Long regarded as primarily a superb be-bop player in the Charlie Parker tradition, King has increasingly absorbed the lessons of other sax masters such as Ornetter Coleman and John Coltrane, and in his 60s is probably playing more adventurously than ever. He is also an enthusiast for classical music, and has composed an opera which has been performed in New York.
