Peter White – Here We Go

Guitarist Peter White teams up with GRAMMY winning saxophonists David Sanborn and Kirk Whalum on his 13th recording. Here We Go offers listeners an eclectic mix of songs that reflect White’s virtuosity as a guitarist, songwriter and collaborator. White also pays homage to several places and people including David Sanborn, Bob Marley, the late Princess Diana, and the beautiful country of Costa Rica.

The creativity and the energy flowing from DC, Philippe Saisse on keyboards, his guest saxophonists and his amazing ensembles form a winning sound as these musicians work together to produce and convey a joyous, diverse recording. The set opens with “Night After Night” an upbeat tune that captures the moods of what listeners can expect from the program. White follows with the powerful ballad, “Time Never Sleeps” a song co-written with Philippe Saisse.

“Here We Go,” features David Sanborn’s exciting chops and was written with him in mind, while “My Lucky Day” pays homage to Bob Marley and “Requiem For A Princess” which White says “may be the saddest song I have ever written” is dedicated to the late Princess Diana. “Desert Night” and “Costa Rica” are built on Latin rhythms with the latter featuring Roman Yslas on congas and timbales. Overall, each song has a special story and Peter White’s impeccable guitar sensibilities make Here We Go even more special.
