Ricky Peterson was a young phenomenon from Minneapolis who came out of a music scene that included both Prince as well as a saxophone player named Irv Williams, who had been pals with Lester Young. In the early nineties, Ricky also spent a couple of years as a staff producer at Paisley Park working for Prince. Ricky is the only musician to have held this rarified position, producing the international best-selling "Most Beautiful Girl in the World" for the Minneapolis legend. At the same time, he worked on productions for George Benson, Phil Upchurch and Anita Baker, among others. Although he's probably best known for his now 20 year association with saxophone legend David Sanborn.
Ricky has always had an orchestral approach to the keyboard and a sly humour to his rhythmic concept, Bob Mintzer too is a master of rhythm, both in his improvisation and in his orchestrations. So they combine together perfectly.
