John Petrucelli on WNJR

Check out new album by John Petrucelli on WNJR. Petrucelli is a  saxophonist  and composer. He first heard about jazz in Trenton, where at age nine his dad took him to jam sessions at the Candlelight and Joe’s Mill Hill, where he saw saxophonist Richie Cole. Petrucelli first dreamed of becoming a lawyer but later found out that he was spending more time playing on saxophone than preparing for his LSATs.  Petrucelli graduated from University of Virginia, he did his MA at Rutgers, and is a current PhD candidate in jazz studies at University of Pittsburgh.
He played with guitarist Peter Park and drummer Gusten Rudolph.
Park and Rudolph reunite with Petrucelli on his new album “The Way,”
