About Peter Sprague:
Inspired by his father's love of jazz, Peter Sprague took up the guitar when he was twelve. In 1978, after studying and playing with notable musicians in Boston such as Pat Matheny and Madame Chaloff, he returned to San Diego and formed a jazz group called The Dance of the Universe Orchestra that featured Kevyn Lettau, John Leftwich, and Peter's brother, Tripp Sprague on saxophone.

He has recorded numerous albums and been a guest on records with musicians such as Chick Corea, Hubert Laws, David Benoit, and Sergio Mendes. One of Sprague's musical groups called Blurring the Edges was awarded the best contemporary jazz recording of 1994 from the San Diego Music Awards.

In 2000 Sprague was voted the Best Jazz Musician of the Year by the San Diego Music Awards organization. Currently, his group, The Peter Sprague String Consort gives concerts all around Southern California and is getting ready to record a new album.
