Album Notes

PURE SLACK KEY -- the newest release from slack key guitarist Jeff Peterson. Son of a paniolo (Hawaiian cowboy), Jeff grew up on Haleakala Ranch on Maui. His fluency in a variety of guitar styles -- including jazz and classical -- has distinguished him as a prominent young artist with his own personal approach to slack key.

PURE SLACK KEY features a combination of six original pieces and traditional Hawaiian songs representing the diversity and depth of the slack key tradition from one of the genre's most accomplished artists. With his sixth album, Jeff Peterson takes the two-hundred-old Hawaiian kiho`alu (slack key guitar) tradition to a new level, with relaxing, nahenahe (sweet) sounds that lift the spirit and invigorate the soul.
