Peter White, catch a live show . . . if you can.
on 26 May 2012
Peter White's "Here we go" album is not quite as instantly appealing as "Glow" (2001) but hopefully most of us have moved on from then, Peter's latest is much more sophisticated, title track is uptempo which gradually builds up (Peter White style) into a brass explosion which is provided by one of my favourite horn player's Kirk Whalum, notable tracks for me are "Reunion" and the upbeat "Night after night" and one that keeps repeating in your head hours after hearing it is "Time never sleeps" followed by the extremely subtle "Our dance", chuck some meat on the BBQ and listen to "Joyride" a great Summer song, all in all yet another Peter White at his classic best.
Peter white was a guitarist with Al Stewart, featured on tracks such as, "On the border" & "Year of the cat" and since the 90s Peter White has established himself as a superb Smooth Jazz artist in addition to Peter's own albums he is a much sort after session artist and is featured with many many smooth Jazz artists cd's. Peter does a couple of one off venues here in the UK most years and has lived in the US for many years. Peter toured the UK when Smooth Jazz enjoyed a much higher profile (Guitars Saxes & more) with artists such as Rick Braun, Richard Elliot, Brian Culbertson, Four play.(Bob James) Steve Cole supported Peter when he played at the Palace Hotel, Manchester, small intimate venue where guests were shown these artists deep appreciation with one the best Smooth Jazz nights that I can remember, the really thing is these two artists are genuinely nice guys.
