Peter White, Columbia, Split After A Decade

WhitePeterXX08.jpgGuitarist Peter White and his label, Columbia Records, have ended their decade-long relationship as Peter has signed a contract with Peak Records, the expanding smooth jazz record label co-founded by Russ Freeman of the Rippingtons.

A new CD of all-original material is expected to be released in March 2009.

The upcoming CD, White's 11th, follows 2006’s Playin’ Favorites, which featured two No. 1 smooth jazz singles, “What Does It Take (To Win Your Love)” and “Mister Magic.”

White joins a roster that includes Mindi Abair, Jeff Lorber, The Rippingtons, Marc Antoine, Gerald Albright, Paul Taylor, Norman Brown, Lee Ritenour, Will Downing, Eric Marienthal, David Benoit and Jessy J.
