[RECAP] Peter Cincotti. Steven, Alan, and Melissa are back in the San Diego studio recapping Peter Cincotti’s interview from this past Tuesday.
Peter was the youngest jazz musician to reach #1 on the Billboard Jazz Charts and collaborations with Phil Ramone, Harry Connick Jr., and David Foster, Peter is now a free agent looking to get his Creative Hustle back out there to the masses. He’s been working on his latest album "Long Way From Home" for 3 years. He built a studio and moved all his pianos to the Jersey Shore... where he spent the summer’s growing up as a kid. He took the time to learn the tech side of the business and produced this whole album, and we are stoked to be supporting him along his journey.
