Two for Tuesday: Peter White

It’s closer to Wednesday here, but I have a couple here from smooth jazz guitarist Peter White. Peter got his start working with Al Stewart (of “Time Passages” fame), and worked with jazz singer Basia in the 1990’s. He’s recorded 13 albums since 1990 and gets a significant amount of play on smooth jazz stations. He and saxophonist Mindi Abair have worked together often in the last few years, including a Christmas concert series with trumpet player Rick Braun.

The first song is “Bueno Funk,” from his 2001 album Glow. It was recorded in July 2011 at the Star of the Desert Arena in Primm, NV, and features Peter on acoustic guitar, Euge Groove on saxophone, Greg Karukas on keyboard, Darryl Williams on bass, Ross Bolton on guitar, and Darryl Williams on drums. The second is a cover of the Isley Brothers’ “Who’s That Lady,” also from Glow, recorded in September 2011 at the Kettle Moraine Jazz Festival. It features White, Karukas, Evan Knight on saxophone, Khari Parker on drums and vocals, and Sharay Reed on bass.

And, with eight minutes to spare, that’s your Two for Tuesday, June 4, 2013…
