by Craig Peyton Group

In 1980 the fusion music album, “Electric Vibes” by the Craig Peyton Group was recorded at Dan Hartman’s “Schoolhouse” studio and released on the Morris Leavy Group’s Buddah/Sutra record label. With the album receiving good airplay and sales, the CPG toured throughout the east coast. As time passed everyone got busy with other studio work/gigs, and the Craig Peyton Group played it’s last show at the Brecker Brother’s, ‘7th Ave South club’ in 1979. 37 years later in 2014 the original CPG band members got together for a jam session, and decided to continue working on music, hang out at The Music Building, and drink too much coffee. This album, Homecoming is the result of our recent sessions, and musical evolution.

Album Notes
Moving from Boston to NYC in 1977 Craig reached out to local New York musicians who were into similar music tastes, Hendrix, Miles Davis, Zappa, Jeff Beck, and everything in between. Craig, Ray, Marcelino, and John played in clubs around Manhattan working on their "fusion" sound and established a following.

In 1978 Dan Hartman heard Craig play the electric vibes at Players Tavern in Westport, Ct, and had Craig play a vibe solo on his global hit “Vertigo/Relight My Fire”. As a thank you for playing on his record, Dan gave Craig one month access to his private recording studio, “Schoolhouse”. The album “Craig Peyton Project, Electric Vibes” was released on the Morris Leavy's Buddah/Sutra label.
