Peter Kater – Resonance

Peter Kater’s Resonance, Yoga and Meditation a Perfect Trifecta

Over the last several weeks, the soundtrack for my morning meditation has been Resonance from New Age pianist Peter Kater. Resonance is Peter ‘s latest release. I think that it is one of his best albums. Several years ago, I discovered the Native American flute of R Carlos Nakai. Soon after that discovery I found the music of Peter Kater through his many collaborations with R Carlos. Many of the albums that they recorded together can be found in my music library. Through his work with R Carlos Nakai Kater developed a love and appreciation for the earth and indigenous cultures. This inspired him to invite more indigenous artist to work with him on various projects. The artists he invited include: Joanne Shenandoah, Bill Miller, Rita Coolidge, Robert Mirabel, Joseph Firecrow, Marty Youngblood, Douglas Blue Feather, Kevin Locke, Jorge Alfano and Ara Tokatlian..

Life’s Soundtrack – The Safari’s Workday flows better with the Music of R Carlos Nakai and Peter Kater

Kater and NakaiSometime in the late 90s, I discovered the music of Native American flute master R Carlos Nakai. Since that time many of his albums have made their way into my music library. Carlos flute, along with the vibes of Gary Burton keep me sane! Many times when I am stressed or worried at work, I say that it is TIME for some R Carlos Nakai and within minutes of the music’s start I am headed back to sanity!! Nakai has some wonderful musicians who work with him to create the music that I love and often need, including William Eaton on a variety of stringed instruments and Will Clipman on various percussion instruments. I particularly like the albums that Nakai has made with pianist Peter Kater. Their 1994 release Honorable Sky is one of my favorites.
