Album Notes
Bob Pettegrew, regionally (New England) well-known pianist, has released his new CD, "Very Mellow Piano". This collection of musical standards from the ‘30s and ‘40s is performed on a concert grand piano, and is presented in a soft and classy style -- perfect for relaxing background music.
An accomplished pianist, Bob has studied with contemporary pianist Tommy Taylor in New York, Eugene Uman and Harvey Diamond at the Vermont Jazz Center, and with the late Tom Gallant, contemporary/jazz pianist and Music Department Chair at Exeter Academy, Exeter, NH.
Bob is known for his solo performances, vocal accompaniment, and small combos around New England. He also runs Piano’Scape—a unique piano camp for adults—held each summer in southern New Hampshire. In 2005, the nationally renowned Peterborough Players requested an hour-long medley of songs performed by Bob in his traditional swing/stride piano style, to be used as background music during a performance depicting a high society cocktail party in New York City. Frequent requests for that soundtrack have prompted the production of this CD.
Bob resides in Hancock, NH, with his wife Hope. In addition to his musical interests, Bob is a management consultant and voice-over artist. He has recorded TV and radio commercials, as well as educational, training, and industrial DVDs.

I purchased 'Very Mellow Piano' a few weeks ago because I was looking for gentle music that I could listen to while enjoying a dinner with my
family and guests. The selections and quality of the music are perfect. I liked it so much that I purchased a second cd to give to my mother-in-law as a gift for Christmas. I highly recommend 'Very Mellow Piano' to anyone who wants to enjoy beautiful, elegant piano music as background to a dining experience or gathering, or just for pure
listening pleasure."

Very Mellow Piano
I recommend this CD to anyone who loves the Great American Songbook and appreciates hearing those tunes handled in an always tasteful, always swinging style. I'd love to hear this artist do a Christmas album!

Charles Benson

Fantastic style -- lovely renditions of standards of the 30s and 40s. Great for quiet listening or background for a gathering. I played it at my company party.


Mellow but slightly ennui
As a buyer of cocktail piano genre, I came across this album and think it is good but not great. The concept is sort of unsophisticated and off. VERY MELLOW? for a title. Just not catchy or elegant. The song choices are fine but his playing seems to lack nuance, and sophistication as well as emotion. The kind of music that is fine if you are not really listening.. good background music. However I prefer a much classier, elegant piano in the style of Liberace or other greats like George Shearing and Bill Evans. On cdbaby I did find a couple of amazing pianists I prefer which I prefer to stick with.. This album is sort of a yawn.. mellow but boring

Great sounds, Bob
I have enjoyed listening to some of your selections, especially "All the Things you are". What a wonderful venture, Bob!
