Peter Slavov | Little Stories

Written by | New Releases Page

“Little Stories is the debut album by Grammy®-nominated bassist and composer Peter Slavov, known for his work with Joe Lovano, Quincy Jones, Alfredo Rodriguez, George Garzone and many others. Little Stories is a concept album: each composition is accompanied by a short printed one-paragraph story that explains the inspiration behind the music, and/or the meaning of the title.

The music was recorded by a core band enhanced on different tracks with strings, voice, acoustic guitar and bass clarinet. All the music was written and arranged by Peter Slavov and is a collection of material written over the past 20 years. The cover art is by acclaimed Chilean artist Maria Jose Concha and was inspired by the music.”
