Jeff Peterson
Born on the island of Maui, Na Hoku Hanohano winner Jeff Peterson grew up on Haleakala ̄ Ranch on the slopes of Haleakala ̄ where his father, a paniolo, or Hawaiian cowboy, introduced to him the rich heritage of Hawaiian music. Peterson was deeply impacted by his father’s music as well as the k ̄i ho ̄‘alu (slack key) he heard on recordings by the Gabby Pahinui Band, Leonard Kwan, and Sonny Chillingworth. He continues to draw inspiration from those memories today. After self-study in the guitar and various musical genres, Peterson further pursued his musical interests and studied jazz and classical guitar at the University of Southern California and at the University of Hawai‘i—Ma ̄noa. He has studied privately with a wide variety of artists including celebrated classical guitarist Benjamin Verdery, slack key guitarist Ozzie Kotani, as well as a number of jazz guitarists including Joe Diorio, Larry Koonse, and Frank Vignola.

Amy Hanaiali'i and Slack Key Masters of Hawai'i
$12.98

http://www.mountainapplecompany.com/slackkeymasters



A ground breaking collaboration between Hawaii's top selling female vocalist Amy Hanaialii and top performers/composers Jeff Peterson, Cyril Pahinui, Dennis Kamakahi, Sonny Lim and Chino Montero in the slack key guitar tradition.

One of the wonderful things about music is its ability to bring people together to share a connection that reaches beyond borders and boundaries. Music can immediately bond souls and create common ground. What happens when kindred spirits who share a deep respect for each other and Hawaiian culture come together to share their music in collaboration? We believe this recording is a great example of just this – creativity, camaraderie, spontaneity, passion, joy, laughter, gratitude, and above all aloha. We hope this recording is as much a joy to listen to, as it was to create.
