ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
WALK IN BEAUTY
Music for Balance, Grace, Right Action and Right Relations

Early Native American culture strongly emphasized the importance of walking this earth with respect, awareness and consideration for many generations to come. The musical alchemy of multi-Grammy nominated pianist-composer, Peter Kater, and Grammy nominated Northern Cheyenne flutist, Joseph Firecrow, is just mesmerizing. Soulful melodies, primal and textured percussion; a well-spring of piano; Native American flute and soaring soprano saxophone . . . this music blesses our sacred journey with deep purpose, vision and love so that we many truly Walk In Beauty.

Peter Kater has received many Grammy Award Nominations for his incredible body of work and sold millions of CD\'s. he has composed for film, television and Broadway but always returns to his love of creating \"Healing\" music for the mind, body and spirit. He was honored with the prestigious United Nations Environmental Leadership Award in recognition of his love, commitment and devotion to the natural beauty and preservation of the Earth, our Home.


We are the eyes, ears and hearts of the Universe. We exist within the Universe just as the Universe exists within us. The One Consciousness guides and communicates with us in a multitude of ways; through our intuition, nature, overheard conversations, our thoughts and through friends and loved ones. My life feels the most full, rich and alive when I\'m in the awareness of the sacredness of all life and all life\'s experiences. The art of accessing the deeper places and awareness of one\'s own being has been practiced in may forms for thousands of years. Today, we reconnect with our deeper selves in many ways. By having quality alone time, being present with our friends and loved ones, seeking out appropriate healing therapies and spending time in nature. We can stop, take an inventory and ask if we\'re addressing our deeper needs and feelings. We can allow the layers of stress and protection to fall away as we remove ourselves from the numbing pace of our society and the over-stimiluating sensationalism of the media. With time, we gain access to our most intimate center and have experiences of unqualified self-love and acceptance. We can travel great inner expanses one step at a time and experience our Selves as part of the great natural divinity of all the Earth and the Heavens. This is our birthright . . . and our healing. - Peter

From MainlyPiano
“Walk In Beauty” is the fourth installment in Peter Kater’s Healing Series, which began in 1997 with “Essence” and then “Compassion” in 1998. The CD cover states that this is “music for balance, integrity, grace, right action, and right relations”; I would add the obvious “relaxation and pure listening pleasure” to that list. Kater often collaborates with Native American musicians, and this time Joseph Firecrow contributes his haunting Native American flutes to Kater’s piano and keyboards. Richard Hardy on soprano saxophone and Pete Korpela on percussion round out this very impressive, expressive ensemble. Many recordings of this type are ambient and “floaty,” but “Walk In Beauty” has a definitely pulse and several of the eight pieces are quite melodic. I have always been amazed at how prolific Peter Kater is, and even with the volume of his output, he never disappoints.

The title track opens the CD with Native American drums and light percussion. Kater enters with a dark, mysterious piano line which becomes even more haunting as Firecrow adds his flute; Richard Hardy’s sax lines here and there sweeten the piece to perfection. A gorgeous beginning! “Beautiful Heart” is a bit more abstract, with spoken words in a Native tongue and a lovely interplay between the piano and flute. “Sweet Embrace” is a piece to get totally lost in. Very slow and serene, synth washes enhance the graceful tranquility of piano, flute, and sax as they weave their magic. “Dancing With The Moon” picks up the pace a bit with gentle percussion behind flowing piano, flute, and sax. “Always Find Me Here” is a quiet yet deeply passionate duet for piano and flute. A bit on the melancholy side, this is a favorite! “The Good Road” is also exceptional with more prominent percussion, haunting flutes, and synth washes - hypnotic.

As always, Peter Kater has done a masterful job with “Walk In Beauty.” Recommended!
