Pete Abbott  Interview: “Those little periods of time made a BIG difference…”

On this Pete Abbott interview, graduating from University of Miami jazz program and hightailing it straight up to New York City, in an act of blind faith (that worked out great)… working with Jose Feliciano, the serendipity of how he became a member of the Average White Band, moving to Norway for 9 years and the cultural adjustments he had to make, surviving divorce, his TOP 3 musical experiences & his worst gig ever, St. Maarten, dealing with loss, Prague, being more accepting of people and loads more. Very chill, deep and sincere, lovely vibe:

Pete’s an in-demand session drummer who’s been mentioned with admiration by at least a dozen or so of other guests we’ve had on this show over the years.He was a full member of the Average White Band, played with artists like Randy Brecker, Bette Midler, Paquito D’Rivera, Tom Jones, Rebekka Bakken (very successful Norwegian singer), Bob Babbitt, David Hungate, Reggie Young, Scott Kempner (The Del Lords), Ashley Monroe (also toured with her for 5 years), Shemekia Copeland (getting ready to do his 3rd LP with her)… as well as some amazing players in Nashville, including Jim Oblon & Victor Krauss, Dave Roe, Charles Treadway, Pat Bergeson and others
