|Peter Apfelbaum (2006)|
|One of the most stellar of the many jazz stars to emerge from Phil Hardymon's Berkeley High School Jazz Project, Peter Apfelbaum is a contemporary of such as pianist Benny Green and fellow-saxophononist Craig Handy, both of whom were in Peter's 1977 Hieroglyphics Ensemble and both of whom, like Peter, now live in the Big Apple.
The Hieroglyphics Ensemble has enjoyed several incarnations, in time and in geography. Pin Peter down? First, you have to find him; then, once you've found him, don't waste your time trying--he's uncategorizable.
