The unique musical collaborative project known as Mississippi sonically bridges South America’s Peru with North America’s Minnesota to bring about a compelling aural tapestry of lush savory improvisational jazz meets fusion. This diversely adventurous group has been playing together since 2006 & is made up of Andrés Prado (of Peru) on guitar, Pete Whitman on saxes, Peter Schimke on piano, Jeff Bailey on bass & Kevin Washington on drums.
