ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Nick is a San Francisco Bay Area native. He began piano lessons at 8.
Peck spent his teenage years exploring pop music, and began writing
his own compositions at 18. He began playing in progressive rock bands
while in college. Starting in the late 80's, Peck fronted the Marin
County-based prog rock group Episode for about a decade, recording two
albums and gigging regionally. Peck continued his formal training in
electronic music, receiving a BA from San Francisco State University
and MFA from Mills College in Oakland, California. During that period,
he focused on composing serious 20th century electronic music,
particularly using modular analog synthesizers, analog tape, and field
recordings.

In the mid-nineties, Peck recorded a big, sprawling epic progressive
rock album called Under the Big Tree. The creation of this album
marked a shift of focus from structured music to more improvisational
techniques. He then co-founded the jamband Ten Ton Chicken. Though
Peck had been playing Hammond organ since he was a teenager, it was
during this period that the organ really became his primary
instrument. After five years, 150 gigs, and two albums with the band,
Peck left to focus on jazz. Six months later, he formed the Mill
Valley Jazz Collective, a soul jazz group.

In 2004, Peck formed Sycamore Park, a funk/jazz band which recorded
and gigged around the Bay Area for a couple of years. His most recent
project is an album of acid and soul jazz compositions entitled "Fire
Trucks I Have Known", which was released in September 2007. As of this
writing, Peck is rehearsing up a new band, the Nick Peck Organ Trio,
to gig in support of the album.

Awesome jam explorations. Really dig the vibe and classic tones. Reminds me of the Saunders/Garcia Keystone era with a bit more jazz flavor. Keep up the good work!
