An Evening with Peter White & Richard Elliot

A popular British electric and nylon-string guitarist, Peter White is known for his lyrical and inventive approach to contemporary smooth jazz and fusion. White initially gained fame in the 1970s as a collaborator with Boney James, Rick Braun, Dave Koz and many others before earning more widespread acclaim as a leader and soloist in his own right. 

Originally from Scotland,  Los Angeles-based  saxophonist and composer Richard Elliot is widely considered one of the architects of urban contemporary jazz. After indulging his lifelong love of funk and R&B as a studio ace and spending five years as a member of Tower of Power , Elliot and his reedy tone began braiding soul, funk, and hip-hop grooves with smooth jazz on his albums including 1986's Trolltown.

Peter White and Richard Elliot have released a number of Top Ten Billboard Jazz Albums, including 1998's Perfect Moment, 2001's Glow, 2009's Good Day, and 2016's Groovin'.
