peterwhite_groovin_5x5_rgbFor his fifteenth recording as a leader, guitarist Peter White returns to some of his favorite tracks from the ’60s and ’70s. Groovin’ takes its title from the Rascals’ tropical-hued ballad hit of 1967, and also includes, from that heady decade, the Beatles’ “Here, There and Everywhere.” From the same era, the R&B classic “I Heard It Through the Grapevine,” a hit for both Marvin Gaye and Gladys Knight, gets a distinctive new reading here by White, as does Otis Redding’s timeless “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay.” The oldest tune, “Sleep Walk,” was a number one instrumental hit in 1959 by Santo and Johnny in the United States, but White actually heard it first by the Shadows, a British guitar combo massively popular in the U.K. that never really caught on in the States.

The former Al Stewart sideman (White co-wrote the 1978 hit “Time Passages”) is also in the midst of an extensive US tour – see tour dates below.
