Peter White @ Blues Alley
Smooth jazz guitarist Peter White’s lyrical lines and musical inventiveness are a joy to listen to. The affable Englishman’s charm and playfulness comes through in his music, giving his style of smooth jazz a liveliness that others in the genre lack.
Peter White first gained fame with his distinctive guitar style accompanying Al Stewart. During a 20-year tenure with Stewart, he co-wrote many songs, including Stewart’s 1978 top-ten hit “Time Passages”. In the late 1980s, White accompanied Basia on a series of acclaimed albums. In 1996, Basia was featured on White’s album Caravan of Dreams, with vocals on the single “Just Another Day”.
Peter White won the award for best Smooth Jazz Musician in the 2007 Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards. He was named the Best Guitarist at the National Smooth Jazz Awards for four consecutive years from 2000-2003. In 2000, White won three Oasis Smooth Jazz Awards. White’s latest CD on Peak Records, Good Day, marks his eleventh solo release.
