Album Notes
7 time Grammy winner Paul Wertico teams up with multi-instrumentalist Brian Peters on Ampersand to create one of the most ambitious records ever released. Recorded over a period of 4 years, it documents a completely new approach to combine elements of both Rock and Jazz music while resulting in a very listenable and captivating final product.

See what the critics are saying:

"Drummer and percussionist extraordinaire Paul Wertico recruited multi-instrumentalist Brian Peters for his own Paul Wertico Trio as a bass player in 2003. For this release the situation was reversed: Brian Peters wrote all songs, played all instruments (except the drum kit), and asked Wertico to participate.

All tracks were recorded between August 2002 and December 2006 in Peters' basement, except for the drums, which Wertico recorded at 'Rat Howl Ricording' (his basement) on December 20, 2005.

"Ampersand", the character representing the word 'and' (&), is a well-chosen title, because this album is all about the musical interaction between Peters and Wertico, with no regards for stylistic boundaries, intriguing as a soundtrack for a film you haven't seen.

Paul Wertico is a world-class, all-around drummer and his play on this release is a stunning example of feel, time, dynamics, and musicality. Previously he reveiled his philosophy of drumming on his instructional videos "Fine Tuning Your Performance" and "Paul Wertico's Drum Philosophy". The main parts include taking chances, being spontaneous, and recognizing the importance of every musical moment. On "Ampersand" it seems that Wertico's philosophy has influenced Brian Peters in a good way as both excel in creating adventurous, creative and alluring music. Simply a musical masterpiece."
