First Flight

A musical multi-threat. McGuinness’s music lays out modern-minded, yet swinging stuff.

For Pete McGuinness, this groundbreaking first flight—leading a big band showcasing his exceptional writing, playing, and singing talents—is the culmination of over twenty years of prior “firsts” within the exclusive, competitive jazz atmosphere of New York. The Pete McGuinness Jazz Orchestra, born in September 2006, features some of the finest players NYC has to offer.
