Peter Kogan has played in the Orchestras of Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Honolulu, and currently, Minnesota. With that much orchestral and classical experience you wouldn't immediately expect a new album of exceptional jazz songs. However that is exactly what Peter has just released on The Green Album. He has assembled a tremendous group of musicians, The Monsterful Wonderband, for his self-led new release. On episode 063, Peter and Jamie discuss his early years of drumming, which includes gigs with Bo Diddley, Lightning Hopkins, and The Drifters, his travels around the world playing in various orchestras, and how The Green Album came to be. Peter is an absolute wealth of knowledge in the drumming and percussion worlds and he shares much of that knowledge in this great interview.
