About The Artist
in 1934 Brooklyn, New York, Peter Nero was born Bernard Nierow, and began growing his incredible musical talent at the young
age of seven when he formally began his formal music training. He quickly began to see his skill escalating, playing concertos
by eleven, but he soon grew tired of playing classical music and instead became infatuated with jazz, later using his love
of multiple genres and skill in piano to create a hybrid fusion that blended a multitude of sounds into one. He eventually
released his first album in 1961, "Piano Forte", winning a Grammy Award that year for Best New Artist, and continued to see
his popularity and success grow throughout the 60's as he introduced audiences across the country to his incredible hybrid
of sound that combined swing, classical, jazz, and pop. Since his first album in 1961, Peter Nero has gone on to release 67
albums in total, receiving another Grammy Award as well as a multitude of other accolades and nominations.
There's no doubt that Peter's debut album "Piano Forte" was an instant classic, cementing him as a legendary
artist in the music scene that is not only skilled in his piano abilities, but is also a musical genius that effortlessly
blends styles and genres together. "Piano Forte" not only introduced the world to Peter Nero, but it also introduced them
to the sounds that Peter was capable of creating, while varying greatly, almost seemed meant to be blended together into a
jazzy swing classical pop hybrid. This 1961 release was his breakthrough album, but he later wowed the world once again with
a single "Summer of '42" that went on to sell over a million copies, a huge deal back then.
