Peter Kater will perform select pieces from his newest album, Call of Love, on Saturday, Oct. 23, at the Spar Street Gallery in Kahului
The album is a hybrid of instrumental music combining and transcending many genres, such as New Age, Contemporary Jazz, Classical Crossover and Pop Instrumental. The compositions are melodic, multi-layered, inspired, rich and spacious. The album also features an instrumental cover of the Sting classic, Fields Of Gold. This is the only time the original guitarist, Dominic Miller, has recorded the song, other than with Sting himself.
