Richard Elliot has enjoyed one of instrumental music’s most dynamic and multi-faceted careers, and has played a huge part in pioneering the genre and radio format which has become today’s contemporary urban jazz. With numerous #1 albums, including On The Town, Soul Embrace, After Dark, and Jumpin’ Off, he has held a consistent presence at the top of the Billboard and Smooth Jazz Radio charts. Elliot has also enjoyed the distinction of having two releases chart simultaneously; Chill Factor remained on Billboard’s Contemporary Jazz Chart for over 94 weeks, 26 weeks simultaneously with the greatest-hits collection, The Best of Richard Elliot. Inspired by the inventive sensation of his 2016 release, Summer Madness, Richard formed West Coast Jam, a touring ensemble of jazz-funk improvisation featuring some of the genre’s biggest names. West Coast Jam 2019 assembles Richard together with longtime collaborator, Peter White, vocal/percussion group DW3, and the West Coast Horns into a rocking kaleidoscope of funk that's sure to have you seeing stars! more

Peter White is a three-time recipient of the National Smooth Jazz Award for Best Guitarist. Peter began a decades-long musical collaboration with his first studio experience at London’s famed Abbey Road in the summer of 1975, recording with Al Stewart on the platinum-selling album Year of the Cat. Together, they wrote Al’s 1978 Top Ten hit, “Time Passages”. After 15 years as a backing musician, Peter started recording his own music in 1990, and has since released a total of 13 solo albums, with several songs reaching No. 1 on Smooth Jazz radio, including “Midnight in Manhattan” with Grover Washington Jr. Fueled by the success of his two highly regarded holiday albums, Songs of the Season (1997) and A Peter White Christmas (2007), he established an annual “Peter White Christmas Tour” in 2003. His latest album, 2016’s Groovin’, is his third collection of covers of his favorite songs
from the 70’s and 80’s, featuring “Groovin’” by the Young Rascals, “I Can See Clearly Now,” the sunny reggae charttopper by Johnny Nash, and the Otis Redding classic, “(Sittin’ On) The Dock of the Bay”. more

Cruise and the Dave Koz Cruise, Brian Culbertson’s Napa Valley Jazz Getaway, and the Cancun Jazz Festival.

DW3’s 2015 release Vintage Truth features exciting original vocal tracks, as well as freshly reimagined covers of classics.
