    Originally from San Francisco, multi-instrumentalist Peck Allmond has lived in NYC for over ten years. Aside from leading and writing for his own jazz/world-music unit, The Peck Allmond Group, he is an in-demand sideman on an unlikely variety of brass and reed instruments: trumpet, flute, saxophones, clarinet, valve trombone, and many others. In recent years he has also been performing and recording on the African instrument called kalimba, or thumb piano. Currently he is a member of Me'Shell NdegeOcello's Spirit Music Sextet, the Oliver Lake Quartet, Peter Apfelbaum's NY Hieroglyphics; and his past recording/performance credits include work with James Brown, Lenny Kravitz, Sean Lennon, Don Cherry, Julius Hemphill, Kotoja, Ben Allison, Jai Uttal & The Pagan Love Orchestra, Craig Handy, Michael Blake, Will Lee, Josh Roseman, O.J. Ekemode's Nigerian All-stars, and others.
