Pete McCann
Jazz guitarist and educator Pete McCann has been a first-call sideman and bandleader on the New York scene for almost twenty years. Possessing a musical style that draws from the blues, jazz and rock genres, McCann's playing and writing styles are as diverse as his influences. Having worked with such world-class performers as Lee Konitz, Chris Tarry, Dave Liebman, Kenny Garrett, Greg Osby, Brian Blade and the Maria Schneider Orchestra, McCann has appeared on over fifty recordings as a sideman. Alongside these accomplishments, McCann has also released four highly-acclaimed albums under his own name, including Extra Mile ((Nineteen-Eight Records, 2009).

AAJ Contributor Matthew Warnock spoke with McCann about Extra Mile, blurring stylistic lines and how being an educator helps McCann to realize his goals as a performer.
