CD Review – Illumination: A Healing Journey, by Peter Kater

Even though Peter Kater's been at it for over 30 years, he still manages to express something new and relevant with each endeavor, and his latest release is no exception.

In accordance with the title and theme of this Grammy-nominated CD, the composer-keyboardist keeps things appropriately subtle, quiet, and tranquil. The tunes have a somber reverence without eschewing appealing melodies and edgy, lush textures.

In addition to his Native American flute, percussion, piano, synthesizer, and vocals, Kater builds up the layered sound mix with Todd Boston on guitar, Michael Fitzpatrick on cello, Bob Rebholz on saxophone, and album executive producer Trisha Bowden on vocals.

Kater once again presents an impeccable audio experience as only he can.
