Peter Dimery’s journey to becoming a gifted tenor saxophonist began thanks to his mother. “I’d wanted to play an instrument, but I didn’t know which one I was going to pick,” he says. “My mom said, ‘I like saxophone,’ so I gave it a shot, and I fell in love with it.” Specifically, Dimery fell in love with the versatility of the tenor sax and became skilled at handling contemporary classical music along with soul and jazz. Ultimately, jazz gained a slight advantage over the other genres because Dimery discovered John Coltrane in his teens. “Coltrane became THE thing I was grasping for,” he says. “The first couple of records I heard were Blue Train and Giant Steps, and I obsessed over those album for the longest time.”
