Somewhere

An Evening of Elegance

 … of lush strings and gorgeous harmonies. 

It’s  Peter Eldridge,  his sensuous, velvet tones and deep storytelling and Kenny Werner’s divine arrangements. 
Somewhere. It’s American elegance not heard or seen 
since Fred Astaire donned a top hat!…  Classic, soulful ballads and stories, including songs by Peter Eldridge,
Kenny Werner,  Ivan Lins,  Leonard Bernstein and others.

A few words from Peter ...I  have been working on an album of beautiful ballads set for voice and full string orchestra – titled “Somewhere” – with arrangements by the inimitable Kenny Werner  (this is a project  Kenny and I have been talking about doing for about a decade) . Kenny has truly  outdone himself orchestrating these songs (his string writing is just incredible). Some tunes by me, some by Kenny, and a few well-known classics. 

There’s just no category for what Peter does.    
It’s simply exquisite, timeless work.

PETER ELDRIDGE

Peter Eldridge ranks “in the celebrated tradition of melodic poets, most famously represented by such disparate voices as  Stevie Wonder,  Paul Simon,  Joni Mitchell,  Van Morrison and Steely Dan – singer/songwriters who create catchy, beautiful tunes with insightful lyrics that are both personal and universal.
