Perter Erskine was born in New Jersey and began playing the drums,; at eighteen he already began his professional career with the Stan Kenton Orchestra, but it is with the Weather Report that the myth really begins: together with Jaco Pastorius and Joe Zawinul he becomes a fundamental member in the golden age of the "Fusion Band" for excellence, records five discs, including the famous live "8.30", awarded with a Grammy Awards. THE
Together with Micheal Brecker, Eddy Gomez and Mike Manieri he is part of another historical group: the Steps Ahead. His collaborations have followed one another over the years, nourished by as many fundamental names in the music scene: we remember Steely Dan, Chick Corea, Diana Krall, Pat Metheny, Pino Daniele and an infinite series of Big Bands.
In addition to the study sessions and live projects experiences, his teaching career is of fundamental importance: teacher at the University Of Southern California, jazz consultant for drums at the Royal Academy Of Music in London, not to mention the numerous seminars around the world.
