Music in the Marly: The Fred Moyer Jazz Trio
Piano: Frederick Moyer
Bass: Peter Tillotson
Drums: Bob Savine
Fred Moyer and friends perform their own arrangements and improvisations of standards from the Great American Songbook, as well as music by jazz trios led by Erroll Garner, Oscar Peterson, Bill Evans, Chick Corea, and other giants. Mr. Moyers will also present a tribute to Dave Brubeck, who died in December 2012, one day before his 91st birthday. He will play his Five Nocturnes for solo piano.
During his nearly 35-year career, Frederick Moyer has been a soloist with many of the world’s most distinguished orchestras, including the Cleveland, Boston, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, Minnesota, and London. His far-flung venues have ranged from Windsor Castle in England to Suntory Hall in Tokyo, from the Sydney Opera House in Australia to the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. His 22 recordings of works by more than 30 composers reflect his eclectic interests – from classical to jazz. He studied music and piano performance in two of the country’s most prestigious programs – the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and Indiana University in Bloomington.
Peter Tillotson’s journey has ranged from garage bands to Lincoln Center, from bebop to bluegrass. He has performed with members of the Boston Symphony, as well as with numerous pop stars and entertainers. The Count Basie Orchestra, Barenaked Ladies, Sheryl Crow, the Dixie Chicks, John Mayer, Dave Matthews, Paul Simon, and Bonnie Raitt have sought his technical expertise in acoustic amplification.
Bob Savine began his formal musical training at Pennsylvania State University where he received his BS in music education. He later studied at the noted Berklee College of Music in Boston. He has performed with a diverse group of singers and instrumentalists, including The Artie Shaw Orchestra, Keely Smith, Mike Metheny, and many more.
