Peter Knight Quartet CD Release

Between Two Moments is the outstanding debut album of Melbourne trumpeter/composer, Peter Knight. Peter features exclusively on flugel horn, setting up a haunting, introspective tone for eight original compositions. The band features the notable talents of: Colin Hopkins, piano; Belinda Moody, double bass and Tony Floyd, drums. The starkly beautiful voice of ex-pat U.S. singer, Alison Wedding is also featured on two tracks with lyrics penned by Peter Knight.

Between Two Moments is an album of subtlety and restraint punctuated by bursts of jagged energy driven by Colin Hopkins’ interplay with the adventurous rhythmic approach of Tony Floyd and Belinda Moody. It is an album which works as a whole, presenting the listener with a musical journey ranging from the sublimely melodic Kenny Wheeler tribute, My Gnu Idea to the sparse beauty of the duet, Song, and the driving energy of Waltz#2.

Peter Knight is an established Melbourne musician having toured and recorded with bands including Moody’s Brood and The Moovin’ and Groovin’ Orchestra. Peter has also performed in Europe and recently travelled to Canada where he studied at the Banff Centre for the Arts with trumpeter Dave Douglas, pianist Kenny Werner and saxophone giant Joe Lovano. Peter also recently returned from a month long stint in Hong Kong where he featured with the Guy Le Claire Quartet.

Between Two Moments is being launched at Bennetts Lane on the 12th of February (9.30-12.00) and distributed through the Newmarket Music.
