ARJUN Will Perform at The Iridium in New York, August 31
Jazz-rock trio, ARJUN, will perform live in New York, at The Iridium at the end of August. ARJUN is made up of Eddie Arjun Peters on guitar, Andre Lyles on bass, and Michael Vetter on drums. The band’s sound is defined by a heady fusion of jazz and rock, velvety textures combined with muscular sonic pressure.
Peters’ skill on the axe has been compared to Jeff Beck, Joe Satriani, Jimmy Page, Eric Clapton, and Jimi Hendrix. His interpretive ability, along with his delicate touch results in the production of dazzling tonal colors of kaleidoscopic expression. His melodies integrate intricate surfaces with nonpareil musicianship.
What sets ARJUN apart is their ability to improvise, concocting new themes, rhythms, and harmonic evolutions extemporaneously. It’s almost as if the trio is telepathic, communicating by some invisible means, as they develop and expand on one another’s constructions.
In 2103, ARJUN dropped Space, the first in a trilogy of interlocked albums. Space featured the tremendous talent of percussionist E.J. Rodriguez. The second album in the trilogy was Core, which showcased the brilliant organ work of John Medeski of Medeski Martin and Wood. Mixed by Scotty Hard, Core landed in the Top 4 on the Jambands Chart.
The third part of the trilogy, Gravity, dropped in 2016. It starred the impressive talents of Jeff Coffin (Dave Matthews Band), Cory Henry (Snarky Puppy), and Molly Cherryholmes. Peters’ guitar work on the album surpassed excellent and entered the rarified realm of the superlative. Gravity attained the fifth spot on the Jambands Chart.
