A mainstay on the New York Jazz Scene, bassist Pete Coco is excited for the upcoming release of his debut album as a leader, “Lined with a Groove,” which features drummer Matt Wilson and pianist Sullivan Fortner. The LP is an homage to his mentors and influences, and features fresh arrangements of tunes by bassists, including Ron Carter, Milt Hinton, Ray Brown, Paul Chambers and more. The album will drop in late 2018/early 2019.

Pete has performed with Matt Wilson, Jane Monheit, Bucky Pizzarelli, Bruce Forman, Joel Weiskopf, and Warren Vache, among others. He has studied jazz with Maestro Ron Carter, Todd Coolman, Rufus Reid, Doug Weiss, Harvie S, Dennis Irwin and Bob Bowen, and classical with Kurt Muroki.

In addition to performing, Pete is an adjunct professor at Hofstra University, where he teaches jazz and classical bass, music history, and conducts the lab jazz band. He is also program director at the Music Academy of Garden City, a private music school he founded in 2006.
