Peter Washington

1964 -

Origin: United States

Main instrument: Bass/double bass/cello

Genre: Jazz

One the most sought-after bass players of the contemporary jazz scene, Peter Washington began his career in the middle of the 1980s. In 1986, the California-born musician moved to New York City, to join Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. In the early 1990s, he became a member of the Tommy Flanagan Trio. After Flanagan's death in 2002, Washington went on to play with the Bill Charlap Trio. In addition to these long-term engagements, he has kept busy playing-as first call studio hand-for a veritable who's who of jazz luminaries including Dizzy Gillespie, Freddie Hubbard, Hank Jones, Clark Terry, Lionel Hampton or Benny Carter.
