Expect an exhilarating mix of music by Harold Arlen, Clifford Brown, Thelonious Monk, Hoagy Carmichael, Mercer Ellington, Bud Powell, Dexter Gordon and other great American tunesmiths. Flutist Peter H. Bloom and guitarist Mark Leighton have performed together for 25 years, winning praise for their stellar musicianship and entertaining concerts. The duo is a member of the New England States Touring Roster.

The Boston Globe called his playing "a revelation for unforced sweetness and strength," while Jazz Improv hailed his "exquisite melody." Bloom is a 40-year veteran with the legendary Aardvark Jazz Orchestra ("lush sonorities worthy of Ellington's finest reed sections" - JazzTimes) and has appeared with such jazz luminaries as Charles Neville, Jaki Byard, Sheila Jordan, and Geri Allen.
