ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Peter Eldridge continues to combine all facets of his musical talents into an eclectic mix of performing, recording, composing and teaching. He released his first two solo recordings in 2001-the sophisticated pop of 'Fool No More', a collection of his original music co-produced by Peter and multitalented Ben Wittman, as well as the bittersweet standards found in 'Stranger in Town', produced by Peter and Jean Lignel, featuring an all-star cast of jazz luminaries such as Michael Brecker, Lewis Nash, Claudio Roditi and Romero Lubambo. Both CDs were recorded for the independent label Rosebud Music. This comes after years of dynamic recordings with the Grammy award-winning vocal group New York Voices, which Peter co-founded with Darmon Meader. The group has been touring the world since 1989 and released its sixth CD in 2001, the critically acclaimed Concord album 'Sing Sing Sing', a swinging big band tribute produced by another Grammy winner, Elliot Scheiner. The New York Voices was recently voted "Favorite Vocal Jazz Group" in the 2002 Jazz Times reader poll.

Reaction to Peter's solo projects has been very strong. WICN-FM of Boston gave 'Stranger in Town' its own version of the Grammy award for best jazz album of 2001. The internet music service allmusicguide.com said of 'Fool No More', "Eldridge belongs in the celebrated tradition of melodic poets, most famously represented by such disparate voices as Stevie Wonder, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, James Taylor and Van Morrison: singer/songwriters who create catchy, beautiful tunes with insightful lyrics that are both personal and universal..."

He\'s Got The Goods...His Artistry Is The Real Thing!
I have known about this talented guy for a long time...and he\'s always been top notch. This CD clearly defines him as a great artist. His writing is poignant, witty and intelligent. His musicianship is superb. His voice is genuine, earnest and beyond skilled, touching the inner ear of his listener\'s heart.

You cannot go wrong with ANYTHING Peter Eldridge has recorded. You also cannot go WITHOUT anything Peter Eldridge has recorded. So, why would you?

Get this Peter Eldridge CD and be a FOOL NO MORE...and while you\'re at it, grab an extra one for a friend, too.

Neil McGarry

Stunning... Flawless performance coupled with the best in arrangement and compos
Breathtakingly beautiful and singularly unique. In one listen I became a huge Peter Eldridge Fan! The singing is spot-on, the lyrics profound yet unpretentious, the chord progressions surprising but always musical.


a joy
A wonderful discovery and a joy to hear. I'm playing it over and over again.

Jordan Johansen

When the gods want to listen to music, this is what they play
Basically, this CD rocks really hard. It's one of those that you find yourself listening to over and over again. Great instrumentals, ridiculously good singing, unique and interesting melodies, amazing lyrics, what more could you ask for? Peter Eldridge is most definately the man.

Interesting, Intricate, Imaginative
This has quickly become one of my favorite discs. Lyrics are at times playful, at times deeply emotional and thoughtful. Eldridge's piano playing is a master class in accompanying voice; the voice and piano weave around each other in a beautiful dance. Ben Wittman's percussion work is likewise imaginative and beautiful.
