Peter White - Confidential CD will be released March 23rd

For well over a decade, guitarist Peter White has consistently released chart-topping albums and radio singles that have helped define smooth jazz.� Without pomp and circumstance, White�s distinctive acoustic guitar sound has romanced, danced and entranced listeners with beautiful melodies, lilting rhythms, and spry instrumentation.�The British musician evocatively creates aural poetry, eloquently using pop, jazz, Latin, and R&B dialects.�White�s ninth solo album, Confidential, will be released March 23rd on Columbia Records.� To start the New Year, radio programmers were serviced the collection�s first single, �Talkin� Bout Love,� a soulful mid-tempo groove that�s warmed by a Jerry Hey horn arrangement.�

Confidential promises to continue the storied affair between White and his fans.� It�s his most intimate disc to date and he wrote or co-wrote ten new compositions.� He also recorded a gorgeous Brenda Russell tune, �She�s In Love,� featuring the positively heavenly vocals of Christopher Cross and a sexy Latin setting courtesy of producer Paul Brown.� Also collaborating with White on the album were Chris Botti, Brian Culbertson, Mindi Abair, Steve Ferrone, Lenny Castro, Paulinho DaCosta, Michael Paulo, Rex Rideout, Mathew Hager, and Steve Dubin.� The album took over a year to record as White struggled to delve deep within.

�By �confidential� I mean personal and revealing; that�s exactly what this record is to me,� White explained.� �I play from the heart, which is where music ultimately comes from.� It�s about tapping into the soul and allowing the emotions within to pour forth.� The battle is to trust your instincts without trying to be too clever, which only ends up corrupting the process and seldom works anyway.�

Immediately after finishing Confidential, White launched his first headlining Christmas concert tour, which started the day after Thanksgiving and finished December 20th.� Saxophonist Mindi Abair joined White on the national trek that featured holiday music as well as hits by both artists.� Spring and summer concert dates to support the Confidential album release will be announced.��
