    Jazz guitarist Peter White debuts this week, with his 2012 release, Here We Go. And "here we go" with his great jazz music! An incredible guitar player, and displaying his talent in jazz music makes his guitar sound even better. He began his music career in 1990, and starting in 2006, he would accomplish a total of six #1 Smooth Jazz songs, including the title track from Here We Go. Surprsingly, none of his album reached #1 on the Jazz Albums chart. They should have, as Peter White is a true great guitar player, A true great Jazz guitar player. Acoustic and Electric Guitar. Here We Go not only showcases his guitar, but the rest of his band also makes each song a must to listen to.

    There isn't one bad track on this album. And.. Here We Go... "Night After Night" has a great Spanish flavor, or is it Tropical Jazz? (There are quite a few songs on this album that fits this style.) "Time Never Sleeps" is a great mood setter, with great guitar and piano. The title track is next, and there is no doubt in hearing this song, that it obviously would become a #1 Smooth Jazz track. The pleasant jazz sounds has "If Ever," which also has a Spanish flavored sound. The piano is one of the definite standout instruments on and of course, the guitar, and towards the end, a great sax solo.

    As many songs on this album highlights the acoustic guitar, that instrument is the focus on "Desert Night." The next two songs are very upbeat and in Tropical Jazz form -- "Joyride" and "Costa Rica." Mixing Jazz with Reggae is heard on "My Lucky Day." And "Requiem For A Princess" is another standout track, with the great acoustic guitar. And on this particular track, Rick Wakeman could easily have played this one with his focus on his famous instrument, the piano. Ending the album is another plesant (and great tune), the acoustic "Reunion."

    Mostly what is heard on Here We Go is the acoustic guitar, on the Spanish side. Whether it's that particular guitar sound, or any guitar (electric or acoustic), Peter White is definitely talented. If you haven't experienced his music, he is a must. Especially if you enjoy Jazz / Smooth Jazz/ New Age music. This album will get repeated listens, and it is quite soothing and relaxing to listen to. Great music to have in the background while you''re working, or just relaxing in general. Peter White is a must for your music enjoyment. Here We Go is a great Jazz album, and a great Jazz guitar album. Three standout tunes: "Night After Night," "Here We Go," "Requiem For A Princess" (which was dedicated to the memory of Princess Diana). Also to mention, that Peter White did get some help from some other famous jazz musicians: Phillipe Saisse (piano, keyboards), David Sanborn (sax), and Kirk Whalum (sax)
