Peter Sprague Trio – TICKETS

Live Music at Arroyo Seco Golf Course — host Brad Coler
Thursdays: Jazz & Blues

Cleveland native Peter Sprague was raised in Colorado until his family moved to Del Mar, California in 1963. Inspired by his father’s love of jazz, he took up the guitar when he was twelve. He formed his first group The Minor Jazz Quartet while in high school. Following a year’s study at the Interlochen Arts Academy, Sprague studied privately and performed around the San Diego area until 1976 when he moved to Boston to study with notable musicians Pat Metheny, Madame Chaloff and Albin Czak (who taught Peter classical guitar). Returning to San Diego in 1978, he formed a ground breaking jazz group The Dance of the Universe Orchestra. At age 20 he was recording his own albums on the Concord Jazz and Xanadu labels. He has been a guest artist on many records and performed and toured with Chick Corea, Hubert Laws, Dianne Reeves, David Benoit, Sergio Mendes and others. On his debut with the Chick Corea band for a series of concerts at Disneyland, noted Los Angeles Times jazz critic, Leonard Feather, wrote “Peter Sprague is one of the emergent great guitarists.” He’ll be joined by his brother Tripp Sprague on sax and flute and Mack Leighton on bass. NOTE: Due to some work in the Blue Guitar room for 3 weeks in May, this show will be outdoors on the patio.
