Pete Sarfati

Pete was born in New York City in the late 60’s. That scene was the backdrop for his major influences in R & B and Jazz; Influences such as Earth Wind & Fire, Stevie Wonder, Spyro Gyra, and the Jazz Crusaders. Starting out with formal training on trumpet and later moving on to the saxophone, Pete longed to swing with the big names like Dexter Gordon, Grover Washington Jr. and Phil Woods.
