Popular smooth jazz guitarist Peter White has finished a brand-new CD titled Good Day that features all-new original songs. The CD is his follow-up to 2006�s Playin� Favorites, which boasted two #1 Smooth Jazz singles, �What Does It Take (To Win Your Love)� and �Mister Magic,� which combined spent 24 weeks at the top of the charts.
Produced by White, DC and Philippe Saisse, the guitarist says that seven of the CD�s 10 songs sprang from ideas that he has accumulated over the past 10 to 15 years. Those songs include �Always, Forever,� �Temptation,� �Mission 2 Mars� and �Bright,� the latter dedicated to the late Wayman Tisdale.
Other songs include the title track by Michael Egizi, who also co-wrote Peter�s smooth jazz hit �Turn It Out�; �(UN) Forgiven,� based on a musical idea by David Kochanski and DC; and �Love Will Find You,� recorded around a pre-existing track by White's brother, Danny White, and featuring new vocals by Basia.
Says White: "My last CD, �Playing Favorites,� was all cover songs. So I won�t be doing any more cover songs for quite awhile, I think. But I�m been working on a new album, and I brought in Philippe Saisse, who I think is a genius. And he�s really kicked it up quite a few levels. I think the world doesn�t want another mediocre smooth jazz album. I have a feeling it might be my best album ever. That�s all I can say. I mean, I�ve really taken my time with it and I�ve been drawing on material that I�ve had over the last 10 years that I�ve stockpiled to put the album together."
