Peter Leitch is best known to jazz fans as a New York-based guitarist and composer, but it's his skills as a photographer that will be on display next month in St. Louis when his new photography show “New York to New Orleans, 2000 - 2007" opens with a reception from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Friday, February 27 at the May Gallery in Webster University's Sverdrup Building, 8300 Big Bend Blvd.

Leitch, who has worked with musical luminaries including Oscar Peterson, Ron Carter, Milt Jackson, Woody Shaw, Pepper Adams, Jaki Byard, Jack McDuff, Kenny Wheeler, Al Grey and St. Louis' own John Hicks, also will play what's being described as “a short concert" with his band at the gallery starting at 7:00 p.m. the next night, Saturday, February 28. Both the reception and concert are free and open to the public.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
