“Tonight I went to see Foolish Hearts, a duo with Peter Eldridge and Matt Aronoff.  They were absolutely amazing—a master class in musicianship at the highest level paired with an incredibly emotional connection with the crowd. I didn’t want the night to end” – Jason Crane, the Jazz Advocate

Foolish Hearts is a relatively new duo featuring vocalist/pianist/composer Peter Eldridge (Grammy-winning New York Voices, MOSS) and upright bassist/composer Matt Aronoff.  Having joined forces a little more than a year ago, Foolish Hearts presents its own originals and arrangements of favorite jazz and pop tunes with an organic sensibility combining voices, piano, bass, and percussion.  The duo has toured the West Coast and Europe, including a week in Latvia last ppring, and performs regularly in New York City.  Eldridge and Aronoff just released the duo’s first studio project, an EP entitled New Definition.  Eldridge recently released his fourth solo album, Mad Heaven, on the Palmetto label, which Jazz Review said “showcases Eldridge as a major player in vocal jazz, an artist of extraordinary depth and conviction." Aronoff is an up-and-coming sideman on the New York music scene. You can also hear him as a member of the electro-pop band Xylos.
