Lounge Art Ensemble


In October 1999, Alan Pasqua, Dave Carpenter and I played for 2 nights at the hippest new jazz club in L.A., Rocco in Bel Air (sadly, the club has since closed its doors). We recorded all 4 sets, and the resulting CD Live at Rocco has become a real favorite for many. Everything came together beautifully: the room’s acoustics, Alan’s incredible touch on a great piano brought in for the occasion, Dave Carpenter’s full sound & stellar sense of time, and a room full of friends who listened to and supported us like crazy. Rich Breen was there to get every sound onto tape, and so here is the 2 CD set Peter Erskine, Alan Pasqua & Dave Carpenter – Live at Rocco.
