In 2011, Andrew Hartman left his life as a guitarist/composer/bandleader in Columbus, OH for unknown prospects in London, England. Making the move with no job or contacts line-up, Hartman thrived on a steady diet of practice, jam sessions, and chips. The experiences served as a catalyst for new music and his later move to New York City.
Those experiences have laid the foundation for Hartmanâ€™s most recent album, â€śCompass,â€ť his second full-length recording. Released in May 2017, â€śCompassâ€ť features the saxophonist Chris Cheek, bassist Ike Sturm, and drummer Zach Harmon and has been described as â€ś... an engaging and exceptional work of artâ€ť in All About Jazz.

JAZZ AT SAINT PETERâ€™S CHURCH
Each Sunday at 5:00 P.M. an open community gathers for prayer and reflection on the lines of jazz.
The community is diverse and includes people who live near and far, native and new New Yorkers, and people visiting New York City.
Oftentimes churches will bring groups from their home congregations. Others are not Christians or are exploring Christianity for the first time in this supportive environment. Musicians from New York and throughout the world come to play.
You do not need a ticket or reservation of any kind to attend a liturgy at Saint Peter's Church. As at every other liturgy of Saint Peterâ€™s Church, everyone is welcome.
