Santa Monica, CA – Legendary drummer, Peter Erskine has been at work capturing the essence of live performance for his latest album: Standards 2, Movie Music which features Alan Pasqua, Bob Mintzer, Darek Oles, and Peter Erskine.

The components of the kit assist the engineer in delivering audio signals that are truly sonically robust, even in challenging environments. more
